Through the generosity of our donors, the Northwestern Alberta Foundation has awarded thousands of dollars to post-secondary students from our region. In 2022, the Foundation of Northwestern Alberta presented over $29,000 in Scholarships to over 70 post-secondary students from Northwestern Alberta. Together we are supporting community leaders of tomorrow.

Financial circumstances shouldn’t be a barrier to post-secondary education and so we are able to offer a range of scholarships to help students with financial need achieve their post-secondary goals.

With 40 scholarships available, completing our Universal Application will find at least one, or maybe more, that you will qualify for.  Simply fill out the application and the system will let you know what scholarships you will be eligible for. 

Notes About The Process

  • Be sure to ask others, including school counsellors, about awards offered through employers or service clubs outside of the foundation.  There are many awards that do not get claimed every year depending on application requirements.
