How it works

Endowments provide a sustainable, long-lasting resource that allows our students to access important scholarship funding for years to come. Since 2009, our endowment program has given over $26 million in scholarships.

These scholarships and bursaries play an important role in the success of more than 4,700 students at NAIT each year!

Making your donation

You can establish an endowment at NAIT by making a lump-sum donation of $25,000 or more. That amount will be held in a long-term investment account, and the interest accrued will go towards supporting a scholarship or bursary.

Endowments are a treasured resource. If you would like to start the process of establishing an endowment at NAIT, please get in touch with us.
