Financial Options

Financing Your Education at Seabird College

Students at Seabird College can finance their education through Indigenous band support, provincial and federal grants, as well as self-paid fees depending on individual circumstances; certain programs qualify for the federal Indigenous Services Canada Post-Secondary Support Program if all eligibility requirements are satisfied; early registration is highly encouraged to confirm funding eligibility and seat availability in your desired program.



Students can attend Seabird College and Adult Education upon confirmation of registration and funding. Students can attend if they are on the Nominal Roll of their Band (as of September 30th of your registration year) or are on the provincial roll, are a fee payer or are receiving grant or program funding. In addition, a number of programs in our line-up are associated with public post-secondary institutions and therefore are eligible for Indigenous Services Canada Public Post-Secondary Support Program funding. Students will be asked to demonstrate funding prior to full acceptance letters of conditional acceptance will be issued prior to full acceptance.


Tuition varies from program to program, and also might depend on a student’s age, whether they have graduated from high school, and whether or not they are eligible for post-secondary funding. Please discuss your details with the registrar at the time of registration. The earlier you register, the better, for this conversation to be had.

Scholarships & Bursaries

Scholarships and bursaries targeted towards Indigenous students can open doors to higher education. These opportunities not only provide monetary support but also recognize and celebrate the unique cultural backgrounds of Indigenous communities. By alleviating the economic barriers, Indigenous-focused scholarships empower individuals to pursue their academic aspirations, preserve cultural heritage, and contribute their invaluable perspectives to enrich the educational landscape.


Seabird College pursues grant funding from both the federal and provincial governments in order to run College programs. Programs are offered based on whether we have received funding from either source. The grant funding provides sponsored seats for Aboriginal students. This includes First Nations, Metis, and self-identified students.

Sponsored seats are thus available depending on the following:

  • College receipt of grant funding
  • Student eligibility for grant funding
  • Available seats
  • Minimum registration numbers per program

Sponsored seats may or may not include transportation – this depends on availability.
