Going back to school could be a life saver.

Become a Medical Lab Technician or Medical Lab Assistant — you could change your life (and help save another's).

With the DynaLIFE Medical Labs bursary program, we’re here to help. We are committed to our current and future employees, the successful management of our business, and the communities where we live and work. We're proud of all of our achievements, including being named one of Alberta's Top 75 Employers for the seventh consecutive year and one of Canada's Best Managed Companies for the ninth consecutive year.

The Roxanne Bunyan MLT and Jeanne Irwin MLA Bursaries 2020

To celebrate, DynaLIFE would like to once again give back to our community with two bursaries:

  1. To an eligible NAIT Medical Laboratory Technology (MLT) student, and
  2. To an eligible NAIT Medical Laboratory Assisting Program (MLA) student

The Roxanne Bunyan Bursary will cover one year of the MLT program, and the Jeanne Irwin Bursary will cover the entire MLA program, which runs for 22 weeks.

Bursary Eligibility

The two DynaLIFE bursaries were created to help give two students the funding to help alleviate tuition fees and ensure that they can afford to attend one of  NAIT's MLA or MLT programs. The bursaries are available to first and second year NAIT MLA or MLT students, Grade 12 students, and adult learners in good educational standing. Applicants must be or will be enrolled in the MLA or MLT programs at the time the bursary application is made. The recipient of each bursary is based on financial need, with academic considerations. 

  • New, first, or second year NAIT MLT or MLA students
  • Good educational standing
  • Enrolled in a NAIT MLA or MLT program at the time of application
