- Opportunities to meet and connect with fellow Indigenous undergraduate students in a program cohort
- A dedicated Faculty Mentor who will be responsible for guiding your learning throughout the length of the program
- Workshops and learning opportunities with your IURMP cohort throughout the program, such as applying for an Undergraduate Student Research Award, and connecting your pathway to Graduate School
Time Commitment: 4-5 hours/week throughout Term 2 (January to April 2021)
Eligibility: Undergraduate students at the Vancouver campuses who self-identify as Indigenous.
