Indspire receives donations, announces partnerships with industry to foster Indigenous student success

Indspire has partnered with and received donations from several organizations over the past month in order to provide more bursaries and scholarships to First Nations, Métis, and Inuit students. iA Financial Group announced that it would donate $1M over five years to create the iA Financial Group Indigenous Bursaries through Indspire. The donation is in addition to the $200K donation provided by iA in 2021. LifeLabs announced a recent partnership with Indspire to support and distribute the Empowering Futures: LifeLabs Bursary for Indigenous Students to Indigenous students enrolled in fields such as frontline health care and laboratory roles, human resources, and the STEM fields. The organization has also received a commitment of a $1M donation, given over four years, from Cenovus Energy Inc. Over the four-year period, Cenovus will be involved across Indspire’s programs and initiatives, and the donation will be used to create annual scholarships and support gatherings for Indigenous youth.
