COVID-19 continues to impact students and the need for support is critical. Although this campaign is complete, please consider a donation to the COVID-19 Student Relief Bursary via our main donation page.

Your support is urgently needed

Many students are struggling. In the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic—an already stressful time—they also have to worry about how to pay for food and living expenses this month.

Some students wonder if they will be able to return to NAIT next semester because they just can't afford it. It's deeply concerning that students will need to choose to put their educational aspirations on hold.

But with your support today, they won't have to.

You can help ease students' financial pressures by making a special gift to the NAIT COVID-19 Student Relief Fund.

With your support, we will make it through this together. Every gift, no matter the size, shows students how deeply we care about helping them continue their education. 

With no administrative fees, 100% of your gift will go directly to students in immediate need of financial aid.

The COVID-19 Student Relief Fund in action

Many students rely on the money earned from part-time and summer jobs. Now they find themselves unemployed. Other students are staying home to take care of family members or children. All while balancing a heavy course load online. 

The COVID-19 Student Relief Fund provides bursaries to students whose lives have been disrupted by the pandemic. The bursary will help students who are experiencing urgent financial burdens associated with travel, relocation, medical costs and lost wages.

The fund was created as a result of $50,000 in donations received to the NAIT Fund and a matching $50,000 gift from the NAIT Students' Association (NAITSA). Thank you to the generous donors who are helping our students through this challenging time. 

Join our community of supporters. Help students continue their studies and build a better future.
