Alberta Scholarships and Awards Deadlines

The Government of Alberta offers various scholarships and awards to recognize outstanding student accomplishments, contribution and achievements. It’s a good idea to start to apply early. 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, or 
2. Nomination of Recipients & Selection

Submitting Applications 

All 2019-20 scholarship and award applications will be available in early August.

You are advised to follow the instructions regarding submission, supporting documents and deadline dates provided on each application. Applications with supporting documentation must be received by Student Aid by the deadline date. In the event that a deadline falls on a statutory holiday or weekend, the effective deadline will be the next business day.

Nominated Scholarships & Awards 

Schools/supporting organizations must nominate applicants and process applications on behalf of students.

Note: For nominated scholarships and awards, please inquire with the sponsoring organization or Student Awards/Graduate Students office at your school about how to apply, the selection process and their posted application deadline. This deadline typically falls several months before the nomination deadline in place for the school/sponsoring organization to submit their nominations to Student Aid.
