Each year two scholarships of $2000.00 are awarded annually by the Indigenous Bar Association Law Student Scholarship Foundation. The scholarships will be presented each year to two Indigenous law students that best demonstrates financial need, academic merit and commitment to Indigenous legal matters. The scholarships are awarded during the IBA annual conference in October of each year.
In order to be considered for an IBA Law Student Scholarship, an applicant must:
A) Be an Indigenous law student (i.e. First Nations, Métis or Inuit) currently enrolled in law school who, at a minimum, has substantially completed their first year of legal studies; and
B) Have demonstrated interest in serving the Indigenous community and the Creator with honour and integrity.
While preference and priority will be given to Indigenous students currently enrolled in law school, students enrolled in other professional legal studies may also be considered for the Scholarship (i.e. LL.M. students, graduate students, and bar admission course students).
