Scholarships & Bursaries

 Attention Gr. 12 students!  Exciting scholarships & bursaries.

Alberta scholarship and award deadlines and applications:

Scholarships & Awards Deadlines: 

It's important for students to leave as much time as possible to complete their scholarship applications. Many scholarships and awards have annual deadlines - and some have fall/winter session deadlines. 

Alberta's scholarships and awards are made available either by:

  1. Student Application- Student must complete and submit application.
  2. Nomination of Recipients- School/supporting organization must nominate and process application on behalf of the student.

Note: For nominated scholarships and awards, students must inquire about the school’s/sponsoring organization’s posted application deadline. This deadline typically falls months before the nomination deadline which is in place for the school/sponsoring organization to submit their nominations to Student Aid.


The deadlines for submitting completed applications and supporting documents required to apply for Alberta scholarships and awards varies according to each scholarship and award. 



Student Opportunities

AFS Interculture Canada - offers opportunities for students to study in another country.  Scholarships are also available.  If you are interested - see one of the counsellors.

UAlberta Feature Program of the Month

Do you know of students who would like to paddle the North Saskatchewan River, dogsled in the Arctic, or snowshoe in the woods and earn credit for it? The University of Alberta’s Augustana Campus in Camrose offers the unique study of Outdoor Education, with no previous experience required. With opportunities to develop leadership, communication, and teamwork skills in the wilderness, students also gain hard skills in trip planning and survival.

Outdoor Education is a stream that can be chosen through three majors: a Bachelor of Arts in Environmental Studies or as a Bachelor or Arts/Science in Physical Education. Outdoor Education courses are also open to any student as electives or through a minor in Physical Education or Environmental Studies. Outdoor Education graduates have gone on to guide canoeing and backpacking trips from Alberta to Northern Ontario, worked for outdoor program camps in Alaska, and have worked and traveled around the world.
