Degree, Diploma, and Certificate Funding
For information regarding COVID-19 and student aid please check your loan providers websites.
Different students have different needs when it comes to funding assistance. Students often rely on a variety of funding options while attending one of our degree, diploma, or certificate programs.
NAIT provides resources for students depending on their program of choice, work history, and financial needs. Some of the funding options below have specific eligibility criteria for individuals and programs or courses but may be an option to assist students in funding their education.
Government student aid is available to full-time and part-time students to cover the cost of tuition, supplies, and living while in school.
Scholarships and Bursaries
Unlike loans, scholarships and bursaries don’t need to be paid back! NAIT provides students with a number of available scholarships and bursaries throughout the year.
