  • Be Status Indian, non-status Indian, Métis or Inuit;
  • Be Saskatchewan residents for at least the past 12 months;
  • Have satisfactory academic standing in completed post-secondary studies;
  • Be registered in at least 12 credit hours per semester; and
  • Maintain a 70 per cent average to receive bursaries in subsequent years.
