Designed to provide financial assistance, North West College’s Scholarship Program is helping support the next generation of creative and innovative thinkers, and equipping them with resources to help advance their education. During the 2019-2020 academic year, North West College distributed over $115,000 to their students and are on track to award a total of  $130,000 in the current academic year.

Scholarships at North West College 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 unique 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. “Each scholarship donation is an investment in North West College, our students and our communities within northwest Saskatchewan. Their support is an ongoing beacon of encouragement for myself and our students, who through the support of these scholarships are able to achieve success in their educational and desired career paths,” said Jay Notay, President and CEO of North West College.
