Established to provide scholarships/bursaries to First Nations/Aboriginal students from School District 73. Applications are submitted to the First Nations Education Council.
The Howling Coyote Education Fund was established in October 2008. The Fund started with the vision and evergy to assist First Nations/Aboriginal youth in School District No. 73 (Kamloops/Thompson) by supporting their post-secondary studies, along with building community capacity. School District 73, the Kamloops Foundation (now the BCICF), the Tk’emlups te Secwepemc and other community members came together to establish the fund, and continue to organize annual fundraising events which have helped the fund to grow each year. As the Fund increases, more student awards become available.
