Equity-deserving Student Supports
Making education equitable and accessible
Through donor funding, NSCC is able to offer support directly to students in equity-deserving groups who have faced both systemic and financial barriers to accessing an education. Equity-deserving groups include Black and African Nova Scotians, Indigenous and Aboriginal Peoples, Women, Persons with Disabilities, 2SLGBTQIA+, and Neurodiverse Communities.
The success of equity-deserving students impacts not only the students but their families and communities as well. By creating and offering new financial, academic, and personal supports through charitable giving, it to sets students up for success and to thrive after graduation.
