Financial Assistance for Adult Students Who Live in Alberta
There are numerous sources of student funding, awards, bursaries, and scholarships for adult students. Don’t let the cost of education discourage or prevent you from getting the education you need, want, and deserve.
Skills Investment Bursary (SIB)
Adults (18 years and older) upgrading by distance education may be eligible for the Alberta Works Skills Investment Bursary (SIB). SIB is administered by the Alberta Students Finance Board and Alberta Human Services. A key goal of this program is to increase opportunities for Albertans to gain the knowledge and skills needed to obtain sustainable employment, increase their incomes, and reduce the need for government support. Eligible students may receive up to $5,000 per year. Eligibility requirements can be found on the Alberta Human Services website.
Apply by completing these simple steps:
*Edmonton residents, please follow instructions under the next heading.
- Review SIB Application Instructions then sections 1 through 7 of the Skills Investment Bursary Form.* (Having issues opening the form? Make sure you have the latest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader. Then, right-click the link you’d like to download, choose “Save Link As…”, save to your desktop, and open the file.)
- Complete your ADLC registration online.**
- Once we’ve confirmed your registration, ADLC will complete the Training Provider Form as a part of your SIB application. You can either pick up the completed form in person or request that we email it to you.
- Once we’ve returned the completed form and proof of registration to you, you’ll need to make an appointment with an Alberta Human Services counsellor who is authorized to approve Skills Investment Bursaries. You’ll submit the forms, in person, to the Alberta Human Services counsellor. Find the office location closest to you on the listing here.
