Indspire is an Indigenous registered charity that invests in the education of Indigenous people. In 2017-18, Indspire disbursed $14.2 million through over 4,900 bursaries and scholarships to First Nations, Inuit, and Métis students.

The criteriafor each award is listed when you click on each link and will show the applicable category (i.e. type of institution), application deadlines, program of study, level of study, and any specific Indigenous affiliations, as well as if there are any other specific criteria such as financial need, preferred geographic location, minimum GPA’s, etc. It does take some time to click through each, so I did want to confirm that there are a sizeable number that have no requirements around geographic location.
