2021 Malyan Michel Bursary Nominations

Nominate a Ktunaxa Student by July 16th!

This $500 bursary was established in 2000 by friends and family of Malyan Michel (pictured above) 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 31 Ktunaxa Nation students totaling $15,500.

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.

Candidate must:
– be of Ktunaxa ancestry
– be an existing post-secondary student that will be returning to studies in Sept 2021.
– or be an adult 19 and over beginning or returning to studies in Sept 2021
– show an interest in their Ktunaxa language and culture.

Please see the PDF just below–it may take a few minutes to appear on your screen.
This is the nomination form with the details to complete your nomination.

Best of luck to all Ktunaxa students!
