Indigenous Pathway Programs

Indigenous Summer Scholars Program (ISSP)

The Indigenous Summer Scholars Program (ISSP) is hosted by the UWinnipeg Faculty of Graduate Studies and invites senior undergraduate students and recent graduates of undergraduate programs who identify as Indigenous Peoples of Canada to explore the possibilities of graduate studies. The goals of the program are: 1) to strengthen the pathways for Indigenous students to move into advanced study and, ultimately, into leadership in the academy and in all sectors of society; 2) to re-affirm the significance and centrality of Indigenous peoples, ways of knowing, and experiences at the UW; and 3) to create a network of Indigenous scholars and allies on campus.

Pathway to Graduate Studies

The Pathway to Graduate Studies (P2GS) program offers research opportunities for Indigenous students in STEM at UWinnipeg. P2GS is open to Indigenous students who have declared a major in a natural science and engineering field or are planning to declare a major in a natural science and engineering field and will be enrolled in UWinnipeg classes for the upcoming Fall term. There is no minimum GPA requirement, what is most important is an interest in science and learning about science-based research.
