Who is considered a QBTS student?
Any student who applies to participate in the program and completes three or more activities between August to April is considered a QBTS student. The recommended core activities are to attend a boot camp, have a mentor through the Neechiwaken program and register for a QBTS section of ARTS 1110. These are the most popular program components. Being a QBTS student at the end of the academic year will qualify students for one of four $1000 tuition prize draws. There are also incentives offered throughout the year for attendance at workshops, advising programming and Indigenous Student Centre events.
