Types of Awards Create needs-based awards to help students who might not otherwise have opportunity to study. Or focus on merit to recognize high-achievers and attract them to NWCC. •Scholarships: Establish a new or give to an existing student scholarship. The criteria are based on academic achievement. •Bursaries: Recipients of bursaries meet criteria based on financial need. •Awards: Criteria are based on a combination of merit, financial need and other requirements like community involvement or leadership. This can be a one time or an annual award that will help students achieve success in their given field of study.

Name your award Create a relationship with NWCC and our students that lives on forever. You might choose to honour or memorialize a family member or friend. Or put it in your own name, or the name of your business. Perhaps name it after a group of friends or entire class who want to create a scholarship to contribute to over a number of years. The choice is up to you.

After receiving an award to help pay for my tuition, I was able to concentrate more on my studies and less on financial stresses.
