Your support has an immediate impact

Your support has the power to help students overcome unexpected financial emergencies. Because of donors’ generosity, emergency bursaries help students who are in urgent financial need.

By donating to emergency bursaries, you will provide critical relief to a student at risk of dropping out of school because of a temporary setback. Your support will have an immediate impact by helping  students continue their post-secondary journey.

The COVID-19 Student Relief Fund

Your support can provide students in need with immediate relief.

A special fund has been created to provide bursaries for students whose lives have been disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The bursaries will help students who are experiencing extreme financial stress. 

Thanks to the $50,000 in donations received to the NAIT Fund, a matching $50,000 gift from the NAIT Students’ Association, and donations to our crowdfunding campaign, we’re making a big impact by helping students in need.

Make your donation to help us increase these bursaries to help as many students as possible.
