Designed to give financial assistance, North West College Scholarship Program is helping support the next generation of creative thinkers and equipping them with resources to help advance their education. During the 2018-2019 academic year, North West College gave out close to $100,000 to their students and is on track to give out $130,000 in the current academic year.
Scholarships at North West are made possible by gifts from individual and corporate donors, as well as a grant from the Saskatchewan Innovation & Opportunity Scholarships program, administered through the Ministry of Advanced Education. Through this program, the Saskatchewan Government matches every dollar the College receives for scholarships from its industry partners and private donors, thus doubling the resources to support even more students.
This is one of two Entrance Scholarship Ceremonies for North West College. The second awards ceremony will be held in North Battleford on November 15th, 2019 at the North West College Battlefords Campus.
