Jennifer Holland – Student Award Recipient

Jennifer is attending Northwestern Polytechnic and is taking a Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology. Jennifer received funding from the Smart and Caring Student Award Fund.

“You do not often realize how much a little goes a long way until you experience it first hand. In post-secondary there are a lot of small costs that really add up, creating a lot of unneeded stress. The money I have been granted will supply me with the necessary textbooks for one semester of school. It is such a relief to have lifted from me to know that I do not have to worry about where the money for those supplies will be coming from. I can rest easy thanks to the help and support that I have received here today.”

We are excited to share we have a newer portal that is more barrier free to help students apply for funding and to cut down on time spent applying!

Student Award Applications will open for the 2023/2024 school year this coming Spring! Visit – for more information.
