Helping Local Students Achieve
The 2017 Northwestern Alberta’s Vital Signs Report found that 53% of Alberta’s workforce has post-secondary education, compared to 64% of the Canadian workforce. On a local level, the rate of high school completions in the Grande Prairie region are consistently less than the provincial average.
Through the generosity of our donors, the Community Foundation of Northwestern Alberta has been able to award thousands of dollars to post-secondary students from our region. In 2018 the Community Foundation of Northwestern Alberta presented over $34,000 in Student Award Funds to local post-secondary students. Together we are supporting the community leaders of tomorrow.
Are you a post-secondary student? Our Student Award Applications for the 2019 year will open in late May. Please subscribe to our email newsletter to receive updates when they are available.
