Indigenous Bar Association Law Student Scholarship

We are pleased to announce the Indigenous Bar Association Law Student Scholarship established in Memory of Ronald Peigan.

Currently, one scholarship is awarded annually by the Indigenous Bar Association Law Student Scholarship Foundation. This scholarship is awarded during the IBA annual conference in October.

A Scholarship of $2,000 will be presented each year to an Indigenous law student that best demonstrates financial need, academic merit and commitment to Indigenous legal matters.

Eligibility Criteria:

In order to be considered for an IBA Law Student Scholarship, an applicant must:

  • be an Indigenous law student (i.e. First Nations, Métis or Inuit) currently enrolled in law school who, at a minimum, has substantially completed their first year of legal studies; and
  • have demonstrated interest in serving the Indigenous community and the Creator with honour and integrity.

While preference and priority will be given to Indigenous students currently enrolled in law school, students enrolled in other professional legal studies may also be considered for the Scholarship (i.e. LL.M. students, graduate students, and bar admission course students).
