You should consider applying for an award if:
If you fit the criteria above, you are eligible to apply! However, high priority will be given to applicants who are also able to show us one or more of the following:
Awards can be used at any public university, college, or technical institute in Alberta. Private institutions and vocational schools accredited by Alberta Enterprise and Advanced Education are also eligible. Awards may be provided to students attending school outside Alberta (but within Canada) when a program is not available within Alberta
An applicant’s program of study must lead to a recognized undergraduate degree, applied degree, diploma, certificate or licence. Graduate programs (Master or Doctoral programs) are not eligible. Academic upgrading, bridging, or college preparation programs may be eligible. Students entering these programs must indicate how completion of study will help them gain admission to a post-secondary program or lead to future gainful employment.
Applicants should complete a single application form to be considered for all three awards programs.
With the completed application form, applicants must provide a personal letter, two current reference letters, proof of attendance at an Edmonton or area school, and a statement of marks for most recent studies (see Application for details).
Applicants will receive notification of decisions by email within approximately three months of the application deadline. Edmonton Community Foundation will notify accepting post-secondary institutions of any award recipients once all award conditions have been fulfilled. In general, student programs should not start before August 1. Applicants may re-apply in subsequent years, but each application is for a single school year only. Public recognition of the award is expected.
Awards are intended to assist recipients with costs such as tuition, fees, books and supplies. In general, awards will be paid directly to the post-secondary institution upon receipt of invoice. Awards to institutions will not be confirmed until all conditions are met.
It is the responsibility of the recipient to adhere to all regulations of the accepting post-secondary institution regarding all fee payments and to ensure that registration and/or enrollment status is not jeopardized. In particular, fee deadlines may impact students prior to sponsorship confirmation. Students are responsible for all expenses not covered by the award, in accordance with institution payment deadlines. No part of any award issued by Edmonton Community Foundation can be applied to amounts owing from previous years.
