The Roxanne Bunyan MLT and Jeanne Irwin MLA Bursaries, 2022

DynaLIFE would like to once again support our community by awarding two bursaries in 2022:

The Roxanne Bunyan MLT Bursary is awarded to an eligible NAIT Medical Laboratory Technology (MLT) student and covers one year's tuition of the MLT program.

The Jeanne Irwin MLA Bursary is awarded to an eligible NAIT Medical Laboratory Assisting Program (MLA) and covers the entire tuition cost of the MLA 22-week program.

Bursary Eligibility

Our DynaLIFE bursaries were created to assist two students, one student per program, with some funding to help support their education goals.

The bursaries are available to

  • First or second year medical laboratory students in good educational standing, 
  • Grade 12 students accepted to either of the medical laboratory programs, or
  • Adult learners accepted to either of the medical laboratory programs.

Applicants must be, or will be, enrolled in either the MLA or MLT programs at the time the bursary application is submitted.
