The Department of Justice Canada has made available three-year scholarships to Metis and non-status Indian students who wish to attend law school. Each year, ten or more pre-law scholarships will be made available to Metis and non-status Indians, to cover the cost of attending a summer orientation program offered by the Native Law Centre, University of Saskatchewan, in Saskatoon and a summer French language pre-law orientation program at the University of Ottawa.
In September, ten or more three-year law school scholarships will be made available to Metis and non-status applicants to defray their living costs, textbooks, tuition fees, and other costs.
The Department of Justice Canada is accepting applications for the summer pre-law program until 1 April, and applications for the law school scholarships until 1 June. Students interested in both programs must forward two separate applications.
