No part of any award issued by the Edmonton Folk Music Festival can be applied to amounts owing from previous years.
Awards can be used at any public university, college, or technical institute in Alberta, as well as at any private institution or vocational school accredited by Alberta Advanced Education and Technology. For schools outside Alberta, institutions must be equivalently accredited.
An applicant’s program of study must lead to a recognized degree, applied degree, diploma, certificate or licence.
