The First Nations Education Steering Committee (FNESC) and the Indigenous Adult and Higher Learning Association (IAHLA) are pleased to announce the launch of the BC call for proposals for the 2020-21 Post-Secondary Partnerships Program (PSPP).

In previous years, this program was managed by the Department of Indigenous Services Canada, but in BC it is now being administered by FNESC, working with IAHLA. The PSPP supports First Nations and First Nations established post-secondary institutes in delivering community-based programming, with the overall aim of increasing the number of First Nations students pursuing post-secondary education.

BC First Nations, as well as Tribal Councils and First Nations post-secondary institutes designated by BC First Nations, are eligible to apply for this funding to support program/course delivery or program/course development or adaptation.

Proposals are due December 15th, 2020 by 4:30pm
