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 scholarships, awards and bursaries helps our students in two key ways. We are able to provide scholarships to reward academic achievement and bursaries and awards to support students in need.
All available scholarships, awards and bursaries 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.
Funding an Award or Endowment
Scholarships, awards or bursaries can be a one time or 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
