Whether you are new to the city, or new to St. Lawrence College, the transition to postsecondary education can sometimes be overwhelming. The Eagle Learning Café, located in Room 33400 on the Kingston campus and in Room A103 on the Cornwall campus, is a comfortable space for Aboriginal students to relax, study, or interact with other Aboriginal students.
The Aboriginal Postsecondary Education and Training (PSET) bursary application is now available. You do not need proof of status to apply; you may simply self-identify as being of Aboriginal heritage (First Nations, Metis, or Inuit). Other eligibility criteria are outlined on the application.
Completed applications must be handed in to Mary Ann Lyons (Room 33400) on the Kingston Campus, Shirley Chaisson (Room A103) on the Cornwall campus, or Maggie Lance (Room 202) on the Brockville campus by Friday, November 29, 2013. Brockville and Kingston students may direct any questions to Mary Ann Lyons firstname.lastname@example.org. Cornwall students may contact Shirley Chaisson email@example.com. Apply now! Application
The Eagle Learning Café features:

- Enlarged screen for use with laptops

Aboriginal Advisor Mary Ann Lyons is available to assist First Nations, Metis, and Inuit students on all three campuses by e-mail or phone, as well as in person where possible. Status is not required for college-related services; students need only self-identify as having Aboriginal ancestry.
