  • Alberta Works Skills Investment Program: Could It Be Right For You?

    The Alberta Works Skill Investment Program is a strategy launched by Alberta Human Resources and Employment (AHRE) to help develop a strong, skilled provincial workforce. The program provides financial assistance to unemployed Albertans in order to help them acquire the skills and training they need, and to help employers meet their demand for skilled workers. It may also provide funding to help adults get the academic upgrading they require to prepare for a post-secondary education. The program provides help with tuition, books and living expenses to eligible Albertans in designated full-time and part-time studies. The amount of aid granted is determined by your financial needs. Eligible programs of study vary, but past applicants have studied everything from Welding to Dental Assisting to Applied Banking.

  • Student Aid Alberta: Ensuring Education Is Possible For Everyone!

    Student Aid Alberta is a student loan awarded based upon the basic costs of tuition, fees, books and supplies. More aid may be awarded to help with child care, transportation and other unique financial needs. A consultation with your college’s financial aid office can assist you to calculate all of your expenses, or help you determine your needs after you’ve applied, if your living situation changes. In general, the loan limit is approximately $6,650 per semester, including aid you may receive in Canada student loans. Furthermore, if you’ve received full-time student aid, you’re automatically considered for the Completion Incentive Grant. This grant provides $1,000 to students who are completing a certificate or diploma in a year or less, or $1,500 to students requiring more than one year to complete their program. Best of all, grant money does not have to be repaid! What are you waiting for? Browse our directory of colleges and find out more about your student aid options!
  • Scholarships, Grants and Bursaries

    There’s a wide variety of scholarships, grants and bursaries available for qualifying students across the province. Your high school or college’s financial aid counsellors will be able to guide you towards the options that best suit your qualifications and needs. Scholarships, grants and bursaries do not have to be repaid, but there are some general differences between the three. Generally speaking:
    • Scholarships are based upon high academic achievement or other achievements, such as athletic ability;
    • Grants are money given out for high grades, financial need and sometimes to continue research projects, such as scientific projects, at the post-secondary level;
    • Bursaries are generally given to students based upon financial need.
