New Alberta Government Funding for Low-Income Learners

Nicole H. Community, Finance, Updates Leave a Comment

Earlier this year, Alberta’s government invested $15 million to create the New Beginnings Bursary to support 1,000 low-income Albertans attending high-demand, qualified post-secondary programs, providing them with a $5,000 non-repayable support each year.

The program quickly capped out for the 2022-23 academic year, which left about 700 eligible applicants without a bursary. To support these applicants with their education goals, Alberta’s government is investing an additional $3.5 million towards the New Beginnings Bursary.

The New Beginnings Bursary is available to individuals studying in key economic sectors, including energy, technology, computer science, and aerospace and aviation, among others.
