Post-Secondary

The Wei Wai Kum First Nation provides post-secondary education funding for both part-time and full-time students. Both receive funding for tuition and books and supplies. Full-time students also receive a living allowance.

To receive funding, Band Members must be approved through the annual application process. Students must submit a post-secondary funding application package to the Education Coordinator by 4:00 p.m. on March 31 of each year.

The Band’s post-secondary policies and guidelines state that to be eligible for post-secondary funding, an applicant must be:

  • a registered member of the Wei Wai Kum First Nation (Campbell River Indian Band)
  • a resident of Canada for the last 12 months, and
  • registered in an accredited post-secondary institution in a program of study that
    • is at least one academic year in length
    • has grade 12 or equivalent as a prerequisite for admission, and
    • leads to a certificate, diploma or degree
