Aboriginal Designated Seat Program

About the Program

The Masters of Arts in Environmental Policy (MAEP) program reserves one seat for a qualified Aboriginal student under the Aboriginal Designated Seats Program. The Aboriginal Designated Seats Program is part of an initiative at Memorial University that responds to the recommendations of the 2009 Presidential Task Force on Aboriginal Initiatives.. The seats have been established in a number of programs across the university and are protected by the Newfoundland and Labrador Human Rights Commission.

Tuition Admission Criteria

Students admitted through the Designated Seats Program must meet the minimum entrance standards. The same admissions criteria apply to Aboriginal students as they do to non-Aboriginal students.

Admissions Process

There is no separate application process for the Aboriginal Designated Seat. Students interested in the Aboriginal Designated Seat Program must apply to the MAEP program through the normal School of Graduate Studies [http://www.mun.ca/become/graduate/apply/] process. In your application, please indicate in the Statement of Interest section that you self-identify as Aboriginal and that you would like to be considered for the Aboriginal Designated Seat Program.
