Given that each Band, Tribal Council or other funding agency has its own postsecondary policy, you will need to contact your Band or Tribal Council directly. The Coordinator of the Centre for Aboriginal Student Services, Randy Pitawanakwat, can assist you during this process. Contact Randy at rpitawan@yorku.ca.

How to apply for Band funding:

  • Contact the Education Counsellor at your local Band office to have a postsecondary education application package sent to you.
  • Carefully read the policy and guidelines. Complete and send out the application before the required deadline.
  • Your Band office will inform you if you have been approved. Follow through with any additional requests from the Band.

If you receive Band funding, your tuition fees will be paid directly to the University by a third party (your Band). Submit your sponsorship letter to Student Financial Services at the time of your enrolment. You must pay your registration deposit within five business days of enrolling in courses to maintain your enrolment status; York will then bill the third party for the balance of your fees.
