February 1, 2021

The Northern Alberta Institute of Technology has announced that they have received a $1M donation from an anonymous donor. The funds will be used to create the “Libra Endowment Fund,” which will provide financial aid to students who are studying applied sciences and technology through eight $5K bursaries. First- and second-year students in the Bachelor of Applied Information Systems Technology, Digital Media and IT, Computer Engineering Technology and Computer Network Administrator programs are eligible for the bursaries, which are based on financial need. “This is an extremely generous donation that will impact generations of NAIT students,” said Robyn Khunkun, AVP of advancement and alumni relations at NAIT. “It’s life-changing. $5,000 will cover a good portion of their annual student expenses.” NAIT (AB)
