AMI Scholarships (IAP Career College)
AMI also has a second meaning: "Ami" is the French word for "friend," which is fitting, because we want scholarship recipients to share their stories about earning a certificate from IAP Career College with their friends.
International Association of Professions Career College, also known as IAP Career College, is a proudly Métis-owned private college. Therese (Tag) Goulet, Academic Director, and Catherine Goulet, Chair of the Board of Trustees, are Métis — Aboriginal Canadians of mixed Native (Cree, Ojibwe) and European (including French) descent.

About AMI Scholarships
The AMI Scholarship consists of free tuition for one IAP Career College basic certificate course of the scholarship recipient’s choice. If you are awarded an AMI Scholarship, you will receive:
I recently graduated from the Book Publisher Certificate Course and I could not be more happy and excited! When I heard about this course, I thought it was too good to be true, especially when I heard about the AMI Indigenous Scholarship. I was surprised to find out that awards were being offered to Indigenous people, due to the fact that the education funds are being cut for all indigenous people around the world. At the time that I discovered this course, I wasn’t able to pay for it and I was in a bit of a ‘career funk’, not knowing where to turn. After being awarded the scholarship (quite quickly I may add!) I was able to take the course with ease. Being a self-publishing author has been a dream of mine since I was a child and now I can pursue that dream! Thank you to everyone at IAP Career College for helping me achieve my goals! Niá:wen/Thank you” – Wahsontanó:ron McGregor-Yuan
