The purpose of the Arctic Fishery Alliance Fund will be to provide funding for students (up to four students concurrently) to participate in the Aboriginal Enriched Support Program (AESP) at Carleton University from the communities of Qikiqtarjuaq, Grise Fiord, Arctic Bay and Resolute Bay. Students will be required to apply for and be accepted into the Aboriginal Enriched Support Program (AESP); a one-year transition program for students seeking entry to university. This program provides opportunities for prospective students to demonstrate their potential to succeed at university.
