In partnership with the Métis Nation of Alberta, and the Métis Capital Housing Corporation, the Rupertsland Institute is offering the Rupertsland Student Emergency Program (RSEP) to help students affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. With many opportunities to grow finances and professional skills lost due to the pandemic, the RESP offers eligible post-secondary students with financial support.

RSEP may provide support in the form of one of the following: rent subsidy, grocery support, distance learning support, tutoring support, or complimentary health services, such as health program enrolment or counselling support. To be eligible for this support, applicants must hold a Métis Nation of Alberta card, be enrolled in a post-secondary institution, and demonstrate financial need related to the pandemic.

The RSEP is funded by a one-time $1.8 million contribution by the Government of Canada, and offers support on a first come, first served basis. Those who apply will also be entered into the newly created Rupertsland Students’ Association for support from ongoing programs and services, and for volunteer opportunities.

Answers to this questionnaire are held in confidence and are subject to the protection of confidential information laws in the Province of Alberta. Please answer the following questions and ensure information provided is clear and accurate. You may be contacted to request additional information or clarification. Confirmation of acceptance at recognized post-secondary institution will be required from applicants.
