In memory of the late Dr. Jacob McKay, IAHLA established annual awards to support current and former students of BC’s Indigenous adult and higher learning institutes. The four awards, in the amount of $1,000 each, are available annually to Aboriginal students who have attended an IAHLA institute and will be continuing at the IAHLA institute or attending a BC post-secondary institution in the fall. Big Congratulations to the four successful candidates!
