The Verna J. Kirkness Science and Engineering Education Program was founded in 2009 and is a Canadian registered charity. The goal of the Foundation is to:
“Increase the number of First Nations, Métis and Inuit students graduating from science and engineering programs in Canada.”
Applications for the 2017 Kirkness Programs will be accepted beginning November 1, 2016.
Students will arrive on campus on the Sunday before the Program start and depart on Friday afternoon after the final project presentations.
