Eligibility: Non-Status or Métis. Status students attending the program are funded through the Confederacy of Mainland Micmac, the Department of Indian Affairs or by individual band councils. Although enrollment is limited to ensure that each student receives considerable personal attention, highly motivated First Nations students of all ages and educational backgrounds are encouraged to apply.

Applicants who are 23 or older are especially encouraged to apply.
