The NSS Foundation has a vision. Of Northern grads, who have landed on their professional feet, reaching back to Northern to inspire students and be inspired. A wonderful transmission of ideas and experiences that creates new runways to possibility.   #NSSMADE

The NSS Foundation is building connections between alumni and students.

In 2021, we connected Northern art students with successful alumni in the art and design world. Alum took the time to inspire students through their work, share professional insights and deepen student understanding of pathways to success. Armed with rave reviews from students and teachers, we promise more of this in more subject areas in the 21/22 school year, hopefully all in-person !
The Foundation’s Instagram feed is full of interesting stories, NSS nostalgia and alumni spotlights. Join us in delighting in the amazing things that NSS alumni are up to.Earlier this year, one alumni following us was so moved by learning about the passing of Northern’s much loved “Mister Z” (Mr. Zawerbny), that he set up a scholarship in Mister Z’s name – $5000 will now go to a graduate with illustration and design promise. There are so many reasons to stay connected.
We're thrilled to report that we received 120 submissions for NSS Scholarships this year. There were so many  thoughtful and inspiring submissions. What a joy to receive! Check our 2021 Winners List to see if you've received a scholarship or award
