Ways to Support

Adopt-a-Wolf

The Adopt a Wolf program was established to generate financial assistance for NWP Wolves Athletics teams and clubs. Wolves student-athletes are seeking contributions to help cover expenses, which are not built into existing institution budgets.

Awards, Scholarships & Bursaries

Awards, scholarships and bursaries are essential within post-secondary education. As fees increase across Canada, we want to ensure financial need is not a barrier to the success of our students. There are several different opportunities to contribute, please review the options below.

Types of Awards

A) Named Awards

  • Named annual awards start at $1,500/year x 10-year pledge or
  • Named endowed awards start at $25,000

B) Named all-inclusive entrance awards. An investment of $30,000/year or a $600,000 endowment will cover school costs for one student’s year of study including tuition, books, housing and living allowance.

C) NWP Pooled Awards. There is no minimum donation required to support one of NWP’s three pooled awards. All donations, regardless of size, have a positive impact on student success. Donors who contribute $10.00 or more receive a charitable tax receipt, annual recognition, and a thank you from an award recipient. The contribution to a pooled award can be made in memory, or as a tribute to someone special.

The three pooled awards at NWP are:

NWP President's Scholarships

These awards are for scholarships for full tuition and fees in the first year of studies at NWP and will be granted to top students entering their first year of study at NWP.
