Scholarships with Madalah

Aquinas College is dedicated to closing educational gaps and fostering inclusivity in education in the Edmund Rice tradition. We understand that students who identify with being Indigenous often face unique challenges in pursuing higher learning. Aquinas College offers programs and support systems that are culturally appropriate. These systems assist with providing opportunities Indigenous students may not have otherwise had.

Through scholarships, mentorship, and culturally sensitive resources, we empower Indigenous students to confidently embark on their educational journey. At Aquinas College, we believe every student deserves a chance to thrive academically by having a positive and meaningful impact on their futures and communities.

Aquinas College is proud to be a partner school with MADALAH.
