Scholarships and Bursaries available through Partnership

Northern Alberta Development Council Partnership 

Northern Alberta Development Council (NADC) has a partnership program with the Division where students may be eligible for matching funds relating to our scholarships and bursaries. Students will be required to pay back service based on the amount of their bursary by working in Northern Alberta upon completion of their studies. Students must complete the NADC Partnership Student Application Form and send it in with the Northland Application
