Scholarship Program for African Nova Scotian Students

 

Basic Eligibility Requirements

 To be eligible for Scholarships/Awards under this program, applicants must meet the following criteria:

 

*The term "Black" is the original term that the Education Incentive Program for Black Students used, and it is the term that the Black Learners Advisory Committee (BLAC) used in their recommendation that the Nova Scotia Government "should provide scholarships and financial assistance to Black learners in recognition of achievement and need". The term 'Black" is used because many people of African ancestry in Canada and Nova Scotia refer to themselves as "Black," a term used to refer to a racial identity, rather than a colous. 

Please view the BLAC report in our Publications section for more information.
