AB invests additional $3.5M in New Beginnings Bursary

The Government of Alberta has invested an additional $3.5M into the New Beginnings Bursary to support 700 low-income learners who otherwise would have been unable to attain an education due to financial barriers. The original bursary program was created in June and reached its maximum quickly. “I’m very glad that we can now support all eligible applicants for the New Beginnings Bursary with this additional funding,” said AB Minister of Advanced Education Demetrios Nicolaides. “All Albertans, no matter their income, should be able to access post-secondary education to gain the skills and training they need to build successful careers and join the workforce of tomorrow.” AB Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
