U of King’s College launches cohort tuition waivers for Mi’kmaw journalism students

The University of King’s College has announced that, starting in 2023, it is dedicating $600K over five years to establish a cohort program for Mi’kmaw students studying journalism. The funds will be used to fully cover tuition for up to three Mi’kmaw students pursuing a Bachelor of Journalism (Honours) every year to ensure that the students, their families, and their communities are not responsible for bearing the financial burden of tuition. Further supports include funding an Indigenous Student Advisor, maintaining a dedicated space for Indigenous students, strengthening relationships with the Elder-in-Residence Program and Indigenous Student Centre at Dalhousie University, and working with Mount Saint Vincent University on making additional resources available to Indigenous students.
