Empowering First Nations, Métis, and Inuit Students

First Nation, Métis, and Inuit (FNMI) students at the University of Alberta are investing not only in themselves but also into their communities and the larger community. FNMI students do not always have full access to all services and programs to enhance and support their success due to financial restraints and/or no personal support. If you would like to pay it forward and help FNMI students maximize their potential, please consider investing your time or monetary support.

Your donation to the First Peoples' House will help:

  • nurture a diverse, inclusive community of outstanding First Nation, Métis, and Inuit leaders from across North America,
  • increase enrollment, retention, and resources for FNMI students,
  • provide access to cultural programming and bring together community through ceremony, and
  • support student success and excellence.
