I believe that there is so much potential among Indigenous youth to bring a drastic change if given proper opportunities in the field of Health Sciences. This bursary is for a youth who is part of the 2-Spirit community to be able to work towards pursuing their dream of getting a post secondary education in the field of Health Sciences. I believe in the power of Indigenous knowledge and teaching that could be incorporated in field such as Health Science to provide people with a Wholistic view of looking at Health. I believe in giving it back to the Indigenous community and this bursary is my and my family’s way of doing our small part of working towards Truth and Reconciliation and walking alongside Indigenous community.
This is eligible to any youth who is part of the 2-Spirit Community in Ontario and who will be/are pursuing the field of Science or Health Sciences for their Post Secondary Education.
Dedicated to my father Balraj Budhiraja who has always taught me to be selfless and continues to inspire me and others to be a better person each day.
