MNO donation creates bursaries for NOSM U Métis students

NOSM University has created a $1M bursary for its Métis medical students, thanks to a $515K endowment from the Métis Nation of Ontario, which is matched by the FDC Foundation. The funding will be used to support up to six Métis students each year. “As the government representing Métis in Ontario, we are proud to do what we can to encourage academic and skills development, helping citizens of the Métis Nation of Ontario achieve their goals,” said MNO President Margaret Froh. “This bursary will enable Métis citizens to play a role in the future of medicine in Ontario—a profession Métis people have been under-represented in for far too long.”
