Success Stories

“Receiving the NIB Trust Fund was a huge blessing in my life. I am now enrolled full time in the Master of Social Work program at UVIC in Indigenous Specialization. How I live my life every day is a reflection of and tribute to all our residential school survivors and ancestors. Receiving this gift from NIB Trust in this manner was a beautiful reminder of these relationships past, present and future.”

“The NIB Trust Fund helped me become a crane/ heavy equipment operator.  Without the funding, I would not have been able to cover the tuition.  I am so grateful that I was selected for funding.  I want people to know that there are more ways other than the traditional routes to get funded.  Without this training I would not have gotten my present employment.”

“As an intergenerational survivor of the residential school, this scholarship has tremendous personal significance as I reflect on the residential school survivors in my family and community.  A business education will allow me to make a meaningful contribution to the economic development in my First Nation community as well as allow me to fulfill my desire to discover new collaborative relationships in the domain of social enterprise to advance the aspirations of Indigenous sovereignty, nationhood, and reconciliation.”

“I was very happy, because being a student can be very stressful financially.  It helped me bring myself closer to my education dream of becoming a teacher.  I truly believe that when a student receives help financially, it makes them feel good inside.  I am very thankful for receiving the scholarship.”
