Funding & Scholarships

North West College has one of the most competitive scholarship programs among the Saskatchewan Regional College system.  Through the generous support of our corporate and individual benefactors, thousands of dollars are awarded annually to reduce the financial burden of those who choose to pursue their education with North West College. The Government of Saskatchewan also contributes a significant amount of funding through the Saskatchewan Innovation & Opportunities Scholarship Program, which matches the funds raised by post-secondary institutions through private sector and community-based partners.

Awards are commonly selected based on academic achievement or financial need and often a combination of the two.  The criteria for selection of an award can also include volunteer or involvement with in your communities and schools. In the 2018-19 academic year, nearly $100,000 was awarded to our students. Please read the application form to determine which awards you can apply for.
