The University of Manitoba is investing in initiatives to advance Indigenous Achievement with the creation of two new funds to help achieve these goals. Nearly $800,000 was awarded to 22 successful projects as part of the Indigenous Initiatives Fund and six proposals to recruit Indigenous Scholars to the U of M have also been accepted.
“The University of Manitoba seeks to foster a greater understanding of Indigenous knowledge, cultures and traditions among our University community,” says Janice Ristock, Provost and Vice-President (Academic). “Through the creation of these two news funds and the outstanding proposals from colleagues across our campuses, we are excited to further progress on these goals to advance Indigenous knowledge and scholarship, and to become a centre of excellence for this work.”
