Bursary Program

The Rise Building Brighter Futures Bursary Program provides access to education, one of the ways we are living our values as to who we are at Rise to support the rising presence of Indigenous Peoples in Canada.

The program is offered in partnership with Indspire, a national Indigenous charity, which will support the administration of the Program.

Access to education supports Indigenous peoples to bring new ideas and their voices forward, creating new pathways for businesses, communities, and Canada. Education is one way to build a foundation for sustained economic growth.

The program includes two annual bursaries which will be distributed annually for five years to one post-secondary student in programs related to Indigenous history, Indigenous language, Indigenous Governance and Indigenous Law and one post-secondary student in programs related to Economics, Finance and Sustainability.

Rise is grateful for the generous support from Axxcelus Capital Advisory, a merchant bank dedicated to facilitating meaningful Indigenous participation in major asset ownership.
