Tahltan Central Government Bursaries and Awards
The Tahltan Central Government (TCG), together with the generous support of TCG’s Business Partners, are pleased to offer Academic Bursaries to Tahltan students pursuing a post-secondary education, Trade Bursaries to Tahltan apprentices and students in trade foundation programs, and Community Capacity Development/Skill Development Bursaries to Tahltan members living in Tahltan Territory and in accredited programs that will benefit the capacity of communities in Tahltan Territory.
To be eligible for a bursary, an applicant must be of Tahltan ancestry and a member of the Tahltan Central Government. Students do not have to be status Indian and they do not have to be a Tahltan or Iskut band member; they can belong to another band. The only criteria are that they are a member of the Tahltan Central Government.
Students can be from anywhere, studying anywhere, and in any accredited post-secondary institution or trade school.
Anyone of Tahltan ancestry and attending a post-secondary institution, trade school or an accredited program can apply by submitting the following information via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Due to the volume of applications, only successful applicants will be contacted. Any award over $500 is subject to a T4A and students will need to claim this amount as income on their tax return. Please note that incomplete applications will not be considered.
A cross section of Tahltan and industry volunteers will evaluate applications and grant awards based on the merit of deserving Tahltan students.
