Northwest is a family business. Our team members are part of that family, and we are committed to supporting them through all aspects of their lives. The Opportunities Through Education Fund is a way for Northwest to give back to its team members and support their families in turn. This education fund is available to relations of team members pursuing academic interests in Canada and/or the United States.


Our goal is to support education while investing in our communities. Our hope is that your children and grandchildren will be able to take advantage of this unique funding program.

We welcome all applicants who are pursuing an education in the Sciences, Technology, Education, Maths, Trades, Business, Arts or Professional Certifications and Designations.

Every year, our fund is tasked with disbursing $25,000 in scholarships and bursaries to support the continued education of our children (and grandchildren!). Each applicant can receive up to $5000 in scholarships from the education fund.

We strongly encourage our drivers to share and discuss this opportunity with their families. There are two opportunities to apply for the Northwest Education Fund, as we have deadlines for the fall and winter semesters!
