SRC regrets to inform you that it will not be offering its Aboriginal Mentorship Program for the summer of 2021. SRC appreciates the support we have received from our funders/collaborators and hopes to continue these relationships in the coming years.
At SRC, we value the positive, long-term relationships we have with Indigenous communities, and we’re dedicated to participating in and supporting initiatives that can benefit Indigenous people.
SRC is committed to fostering Indigenous participation in the science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) disciplines by supporting students as they progress through their post-secondary education with opportunities to learn and grow both personally and professionally.
The program aims to connect Indigenous post-secondary students in the STEM disciplines with SRC mentors to help them take their education and experience to the next level. Our program kicks off in the spring of each year and includes one-on-one coaching and mentoring, along with meaningful paid summer employment and opportunities to help students develop skills and gain experience that will further their studies and future careers.
Am I eligible?
- Saskatchewan resident, of First Nation (Status or Non-Status), Métis or Inuit ancestry
- Enrolled at a post-secondary institution in a STEM-related discipline; returning to full-time studies after a period of summer employment
- Can commit to a 16-week May to August paid work placement at one of our locations in Saskatchewan
