Through the generosity of our donors, the Northwestern Alberta Foundation has awarded thousands of dollars to post-secondary students from our region. In 2023, the Foundation of Northwestern Alberta presented over $44,930 in awards to over 88 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 awards to help students with financial need achieve their post-secondary goals.

With over 40 awards 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 awards you will be eligible for.
