Awards, Bursaries & Scholarships

The NWCC Foundation, together with the generous suport of our community, raise funds to support students studying at Northwest Community College by way of endowments and bursaries.

Donating to awards, bursaries and scholarships helps our students in two key ways.  We are able to provide bursaries and awards to support students in need and scholarships to reward academic achievement.  

All available awards, bursaries and scholarships are posted to our website.  NWCC's Finanical Aid department helps students access the funds, by listing the criteria and application process. Other awards are granted to deserving students by our faculty. 

Awards:
Criteria is based on a combination of merit, financial need, and other requirements such as community involvement or leadership. 

Bursaries:
Recipients of bursaries meet criteria based on financial need.

Scholarships:
Students are chosen for scholarships based on academic achievement and merit.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Funding an Award or Endowment

Awards, bursaries or scholarships can be a one time or an annual award that will help students achieve success in their given field of study.  You may establish a new award or give to an existing student scholarship.  

An endowment fund is an investment fund established on your behalf by the Foundation.  The endowment fund allows us to make regular or annual withdrawals from invested capital.  The endowed minimum contribution amount is $25,000 and that donation will continue in perpetuity (forever).  You also have the option of donating to the NWCC Foundation Endowment Fund which supplies funds to many bursaries, scholarships and awards.

Creating your award

  • Create a need-based award to help students who might not otherwise have an opportunity to study (e.g. a single parent or a student from out of town)
  • Or focus on merit to recognize high-achievers

Naming your award

Create a relationship with NWCC and our students that lives on forever.

  • You might choose to honor or memorialize a family member or friend
  • Or, put it in your own name or the name of your business
