Awards & Scholarships
Be prepared to spend some time on applying for scholarships. Start collecting reference letters during your high school years for volunteer work. Your training and education will cost money, but you may be eligible for scholarships, bursaries, and grants to help you pay for school. Scholarships aren’t just for students with top grades. You can get scholarships for things like leadership, sports, volunteering, or membership with specific groups. The Government of Alberta provides detailed information on the process of applying for scholarships.
