Indspire is an Indigenous-led registered charity that invests in the education of Indigenous people for the long term benefit of these individuals, their families and communities, and Canada.

With the support of our funding partners, Indspire disburses financial awards, delivers programs, and shares resources with the goal of closing the gap in Indigenous education. Through the K-12 Indspire Institute, we provide resources to educators, communities, and other stakeholders who are committed to improving kindergarten to grade 12 success for Indigenous youth.

Since 1985, Indspire has disbursed almost $65 million through close to 20,000 scholarships and bursaries to Indigenous students, making us the largest funder of Indigenous education outside the federal government. Each year, we present the Indspire Awards, a gala celebration of the successes achieved by Indigenous people that is broadcast nationally.

How much could I receive?

Bursaries and scholarship awards vary. Each application is reviewed individually, and the amount disbursed depends on the assessed financial needs of the applicant, the number of applicants, and the availability of funds; however, historically amounts have ranged from $1,000 to $25,000
