COPPUL Announces New Indigenous Student Award

July 21, 2022

Great news from our sister consortium the Council of Prairie and Pacific University Libraries (COPPUL)!

COPPUL has partnered with Indspire to offer an Indigenous Student award to aspiring Indigenous librarians and archivists.

“We are very excited to be able to offer a total of $44,000 annually for the COPPUL Indigenous Student Award within Indspire’s Building Brighter Futures: Bursaries, Scholarships, and Awards Program. The intention of this award is to support Indigenous students interested in pursuing a career in libraries or archives within Western Canada’s library community. The award will be offered to Indigenous students from Western Canada entering their first or second year of an ALA-accredited master’s program or equivalent in Library and Information or Archival Studies at a post-secondary institution in Canada or abroad via an online program.”
