Alberta scholarship and award deadlines and applications:

Scholarships & Awards Deadlines: 

It's important for students to leave as much time as possible to complete their scholarship applications. Many scholarships and awards have annual deadlines - and some have fall/winter session deadlines. 

Alberta's scholarships and awards are made available either by:

  1. Student Application- Student must complete and submit application.
  2. Nomination of Recipients- School/supporting organization must nominate and process application on behalf of the student.

Note: For nominated scholarships and awards, students must inquire about the school’s/sponsoring organization’s posted application deadline. This deadline typically falls months before the nomination deadline which is in place for the school/sponsoring organization to submit their nominations to Student Aid.

The deadlines for submitting completed applications and supporting documents required to apply for Alberta scholarships and awards varies according to each scholarship and award. 


This recently launched new website (  helps students find and apply for scholarships.

The site was created with the intent to help reduce student debt, which many students have to take on for post-secondary education. streamlines the scholarship process for students; all they have to do is create a simple profile and based on the information they provide (including school, field of interest, volunteer experience etc.)  we will match them to all of the scholarships that they qualify for.  ScholarTree is 100% free to students!
