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