Rio Tinto Alcan has established an ongoing bursary fund of $500 per year. This fund is the result of a donation to the Northwest Community College Endowment Fund. Applicants for the Rio Tinto Alcan Bursary must be enrolled in full-time credit programs and must have demonstrated financial need.
This bursary was created to honor the memory of former NWCC employee Sandra Bullock. Sandra was an active member in the Terrace Hospice Society and a champion of higher learning.
This bursary will be awarded to a student enrolled in the Northern Collaborative Baccalaureate in Nursing or Home Care Attendant Program
Shelley Koopmans devoted many years of exceptional service to students at NWCC. She was a tireless advocate and acted with grace, care and understanding. This bursary is meant to honor Shelley's contributions and to continue a legacy in her name.
The bursary is self-funded through donations and will be adjudicated annually in fall. If funds permit, the bursary may be adjudicated twice per year.
Should you wish to donate, please contact NWCC's Advancement Department at 1.877.277.2288
