The following resource pages have been developed to support First Nations Post-Secondary Education (PSE) Coordinators in carrying out their important work of providing guidance to students, administering funding, and implementing community post-secondary education priorities.

We welcome suggestions from PSE Coordinators for additional resources for these pages.

PSE Resource Line

FNESC’s PSE Resource Line is a phone and email service available to First Nations PSE Coordinators. Through the service, coordinators can ask questions about administering the PSSP and UCEP, scholarships and awards and other PSE issues.  Most inquiries are answered on the same business day that they are received.

Phone: 1-877-280-4151    Email: pse@fnesc.ca

Here are just a few examples of the questions we receive at the Resource Line:

  • Is this student expense eligible?
  • What does this government policy mean?
  • Where can I go for UCEP information?
  • How is post-secondary education funding allocated?
  • How do I fill out these forms?
