Call for Applications: ḴEL,ḴELOŦEN ȻE S,ISTEW̱ Award – Deadline: Jan 6, 2023

Do you identify as an Indigenous, First Nations, Inuit, or Métis persons from BC with a desire to pursue a career in the Architecture and Engineering industry? Are you enrolled or have you applied for the 2022/2023 post secondary school year?


There are very few Indigenous professionals working in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) in Canada. Many engineering and architecture firms work with Indigenous communities but few have Indigenous people working within their organizations. The ḴEL,ḴELOŦEN ȻE S,ISTEW̱ Education Fund and their partners recognize this and want to help Indigenous people pursue careers in our industry. The fund will provide both financial support and career mentorship.

The ḴEL,ḴELOŦEN ȻE S,ISTEW̱ Fund invites all Indigenous, First Nations, Inuit, and Métis students pursuing careers in architecture or engineering to apply to the award. An award of $5,000 will be awarded annually to one successful applicant.
