The NSCC Foundation is dedicated to helping students in financial need and improving access to education. We want to ensure that every Nova Scotian who aspires to attend NSCC is able to do so. Our goal is to help NSCC fulfil its mission through philanthropy.
NSCC students dare to dream big and they deserve the support they need to attain their goals.
Make Way – The Campaign for NSCC is a $25-million, province-wide fundraising initiative with one ambitious but simple goal: to remove barriers for those on their NSCC journey.
In 2016-2017, we awarded 1,000 scholarships and bursaries and helped 850 students through unforeseen circumstances with urgent aid. However, we received 16,000 applications for awards that same year. The funds invested in the College through Make Way will mean more resources to support students like:
- Samantha, a 30-year-old single mother in Yarmouth who was working in hospital housekeeping but yearning to do direct patient care. A bursary allowed her to enroll in the Continuing Care program at Burridge Campus.
- Ryder, a recent university grad who was feeling the financial strain of pursuing additional post-secondary training via the Advanced Diploma in Marine Geomatics from NSCC's Centre of Geographic Sciences. He received help in the form of an entrance bursary.
- Dana, who had to make a mid-life career change after a workplace injury. While studying Occupational Health & Safety at Marconi Campus, she thought she would have to choose between continuing her program and ensuring she had a roof over her head. NSCC's Urgent Aid Fund helped her through that rough spot, which assisted her in reaching graduation in June 2017.
