Indspire is the largest supporter of Indigenous education outside the federal government. To date Indspire has awarded more than $50 million in scholarships and bursaries to 14,000 First Nation, Inuit and Metis recipients nationwide. Thanks to the generosity of numerous corporate and government partners, Indspire disburses funds to Indigenous youth across Canada, covering all disciplines in four funding categories: Fine Arts, Oil and Gas and Trades and Technology, Health Careers and Post Secondary Education. Indspire is able to obtain and disburse this much-needed financial support by partnering and engaging some of Canada's leading companies, public agencies, professional and labour groups who generously invest their resources toward realization of the potential of First Nation, Inuit and Metis students.
