Are you/do you know an Indigenous youth that is interested in a career in Health Sciences (Medicine, Nursing, Physiotherapy, Dentistry, etc.)? Then this program is for you. The Junior University Summer Camp Program is an excellent opportunity for Indigenous Youth to see what kind of Health Careers are available to them. The best part is that the Camps are all free!
2019 Junior University.
The Dalhousie Faculty of Medicine's Indigenous Health Program, in partnership with The Johnson Scholarship foundation, will be hosting THREE health sciences summer camps in Nova Scotia for Indigenous students this summer. As participants in the program, students will be exposed to a variety of healthcare professions and training programs through interactive, hands on programming. The 2018 camps were a huge success. We were able to put 43 students through the program in 2018 up from 24 in 2017 and the feedback from all involved was extremely positive.
2019 is looking to be the best year yet with all kinds of new learning opportunities being added to the already stellar lineup of workshops and cultural activities. In addition to the regular programming the 2019 Junior University summer camp will offer 2 students a $1000.00 promise scholarship provided by the AIMS network. We strive to constantly improve the camp experience every year using the feedback from participants and facilitators to inform our efforts.
The Junior University programs are hosted at;
- Dalhousie University (July 7-11)
- St. Francis Xavier University (July 16-19)
- Cape Breton University (July 22-25)
with the collaboration of Nova Scotia Community College. Indigenous Students from grade (8-11) are encouraged to apply.

Congratulations to Eskasoni Elementary and Middle School students for placing at the MKRSF which took place in We'koqma'q on April 11, 2019. We are so proud of you and of all those who attended.
EEMS students had two winning projects in the grade 7-9 division, with a 3rd winner being a former EEMS student coming from grade 9 at ABMHS.
Taking home the 1st place prize for her project "Responding to my Language" was Maria Alex. Maria received a cash prize of $100 for her first place win. This regional win qualifies her for the Canada-wide Science Fair that takes place May 15-17 in Fredericton, NB. This is Maria's second year in a row qualifying for the Canada-wide Science Fair. Awesome job, Maria!
Taking home the 2nd place prize for their project "Bacteria" were Joy Johnson and Maria Young. The team received a cash prize of $75 for their second place finish. In addition to their 2nd place win, Joy and Maria each received a $500 Public Health Scholarship to Cape Breton University. Way to go, girls!
To round out the 7-9 division, recent EEMS grad Chase Denny took home the 3rd place prize for his project "Flow State". The 3rd place finish earned him a $50 cash prize. Great work, Chase!
