The Community Foundation of Northwestern Alberta is proud to announce the 2022 Student Awards application portal is now open to local post-secondary students.

Your Community Foundation has many great funding opportunities for post-secondary students looking for assistance in reaching their education goals. Encouraging and supporting post-secondary students is the reason some donors turn to the Community Foundation of Northwestern Alberta. Student Awards are open to all post-secondary students from Northwestern Alberta regardless of program, or year of study.

New this year, a streamlined application process will be introduced where students can fill in their information and the system will generate a list of awards they are eligible for. This process will save time and ensure that students are accessing all possible funding when they apply.

The Community Foundation is proud of the variety of awards available. CEO Laura LaValley says “Over $40,000 of student award money is available to students of all ages, including mature students. We support many different areas of study, community involvement, athletics, apprenticeships, arts and culture, and volunteerism. There’s something for every type of student!”

Student Award applications are now available and can be found online at:

The deadline for completed student award applications is August 15, 2022. Applicants are encouraged to call the Community Foundation of Northwestern Alberta office if they have any questions about applying.
