Student Awards

Helping Local Students Achieve

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 2021 the Community Foundation of Northwestern Alberta presented over $29,000 in Student Award Funds to post-secondary students from Northwestern Alberta. Together we are supporting the community leaders of tomorrow.

Financial circumstances shouldn’t be a barrier to post-secondary education. That’s why the Community Foundation of Northwestern Alberta offers a range of student awards to help students with financial need achieve their post-secondary goals.

Applying for student awards can be confusing and intimidating. We have put together some handy tips to consider before you apply for one of our student awards. Make sure you read these thoroughly before submitting an application.

Notes About The Process

  • 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.
