Information on Alberta Scholarships & Financial Aid


Here are some of the websites to visit to seek out financial support for your plans to attend post-secondary. There are many different types of scholarships out there and because each student is unique, it is important to search for the awards for which you may qualify. You can often find scholarships through your post-secondary institution of choice by going onto the school’s website and searching for scholarships.  Post-secondary schools often have a “scholarship application form” that students can fill in and then the school will then search out awards students qualify for on their behalf.


Here is more important information to note:

Student Loans: Go into SIAMS, (link below). You may have already created an account, but if not, just create a new account or contact them if you can’t access your account.
