Frequently Asked Questions
When are incentives given out?
If accepted into the incentive program, the monthly attendance incentive will be direct deposited into your account on the 15th of each month.
Does NITF support students with laptops?
Not at this time, our main focus is to give monetary awards to students as a method of encouraging students to continue their education goals! However, SCN students may be eligible to be awarded a laptop from our sponsors at the annual awards night if they have a high grade point average, and recognizable community involvement.
Does NITF pay for tuition?
NITF does not provide financial assistance for any direct costs related to education programs. Any assistance provided to qualifying Samson students is without prejudice to the obligations of the Government of Canada by virtue of Treaty No. 6. The Federal government has a treaty, trust, fiduciary and other obligations and responsibilities to provide financial assistance to Samson Cree members for their education. The NITF Deed does not permit Board of Trustees to occupy any area of funding that the federal government is responsible for. Therefore, Nipisihkopahk Iyiniswin Trust Fund does not, under any circumstances, provide assistance for the following:
- Registration Fees
- Tuition Fees
- Student Living Allowance
