The Rotary Club of Prince Rupert, through a donation to Northwest Community College Endowment Fund, has established an ongoing bursary fund of $250 per year. The first priority for awarding this money will be to full-time credit students attending class at the Prince Rupert campus or to Prince Rupert students attending programs in Terrace. Students from other areas would be eligible if the award was not made in the first semester to a Prince Rupert student.
