How do I apply for post-secondary funding through Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada (AANDC)?

  1. Apply for funding
    • Fill out application
    • Provide a letter of acceptance or proof of registration from your school
    • Provide your most recent transcripts
    • Provide a copy of your current status card (front and back)
    • Provide proof of any dependants you may have.
  2. You will receive a letter telling you whether or not your application was successful.
    • The letter will tell you how much money you will receive.
    • You will need to sign three copies of a tuition letter. This letter allows us to pay your tuition to the school. It also allows the school to share information with us about what courses you are taking and your grades. Give one to AANDC, one to your school and keep one for your records.
  3. Once your school has received the signed tuition letter, they will be able to invoice us directly for your tuition and mandatory fees.
  4. If you are eligible for living expenses, you will receive a monthly cheque. We try to make sure this cheque arrives at the beginning of the month.
  5. When you submit your receipts for travel, (if you are eligible) AANDC will reimburse you for those amounts. You will be mailed a cheque or it will be added to your monthly cheque.
  6. You must submit a new application by March 1st, if you are going to school in April. This is because April 1st is a new fiscal year for the federal government. Don't forget, otherwise you will stop receiving your monthly cheques in April.
