COPPUL is very pleased to announce its partnership with Indspire to offer an Indigenous Student award to aspiring Indigenous librarians and archivists. Indspire is a national Indigenous registered charity that invests in the education of First Nations, Inuit, and Métis people for the long-term benefit of these individuals, their families and communities. COPPUL is a Western Canadian academic library consortium that leverages its members’ collective expertise, resources, and influence to enhance learning, teaching, student experiences, and research at academic libraries in Western Canada.
We are very excited to be able to offer a total of $44,000 annually for the COPPUL Indigenous Student Award within Indspire’s Building Brighter Futures: Bursaries, Scholarships, and Awards Program.

The award will be offered to Indigenous students from Western Canada entering their first or second year of an ALA-accredited master’s program or equivalent in Library and Information or Archival Studies at a post-secondary institution in Canada or abroad via an online program.
