23rd Annual Malyan Michel Bursary

23rd Annual Malyan Michel Bursary

Awarded: Wed, July 26, 2023

This $500 bursary was established in 2000 by friends and family of Malyan Michel to recognize deserving post-secondary students from the Ktunaxa Nation.

Malyan was a language and culture teacher and always encouraged people to return to school and further their education while still holding onto their Ktunaxa heritage.

This bursary has been awarded to 35 Ktunaxa Nation students so far, totaling $17,500.

The funds for these bursaries are raised every year through raffles and 50/50 draws, as well as donations from our generous supporters.

We would like to thank everyone for their continued support over the years.

To be eligible, candidates must:

  • be of Ktunaxa ancestry
  • be an existing post-secondary student that will be returning to studies in Sept 2023.
  • or be an adult 19 and over beginning or returning to studies in Sept 2023
  • show an interest in their Ktunaxa language and culture
