A new Métis Nation—Saskatchewan (MN—S) Post-Secondary COVID-19 Relief Benefit was launched earlier this week. The purpose of the Métis Nation Post-Secondary COVID-19 Relief Benefit is to provide financial assistance to Métis post-secondary students who have a demonstrated need due to economic disruptions or cost-of-living increases due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This benefit is funded by the MN—S and administered by the Gabriel Dumont Institute (GDI).

To be eligible for this relief program you must be a registered citizen of the Métis Nation-Saskatchewan, or have an application for citizenship pending with the Métis Nation-Saskatchewan Citizenship Registry, and be attending recognized post-secondary education. Application information can be found here: gdins.org/covid-19/metis-nation-post-secondary-covid-relief-benefit.  All application questions can be directed to usponsorship@gdins.org.
