Our Bursaries

Important change in the bursary award cycle for the 2019/20 academic year. 

The NADC bursaries are provided through a partnership between the NADC and Alberta Student Aid in the Ministry of Advanced Education. 

Alberta Student Aid is working on a major technology project to streamline the application and payment process for scholarships and awards. They are aiming to get the new application and payment processing system up and running and expect the system to be operational in late fall. Students can expect scholarship and award applications at the same time. No scholarship and award decisions will be made in the meantime.

Applicants will not have to resubmit an NADC bursary application for the 2019/20 academic year.

More information is available at: https://studentaid.alberta.ca/scholarships/alberta-scholarships-and-awards-deadlines/

We thank all applicants for their patience and will update this site as new information is available.



Limitless opportunities and huge adventures await you in northern Alberta. 150 energetic communities spread across 380,000 km2 of wide open potential, thousands of new jobs each year in Canada's strongest economy—its history in the making and you can be part of it.

This is the right place to start or advance in your career – and the cool thing is that you can find new opportunities just about everywhere. Whether you choose to live in a small town, mid-sized city or way out in the country – you will always be close to great jobs, incredible natural beauty and vibrant community life.

We are Canada’s outback – a vast area of grandiose lakes, mighty rivers, abundant wildlife and untapped wilderness. Outdoor opportunities abound, including mountain biking, horseback riding, canoeing, jet boating, ATVing, and hiking in the summer, and snowmobiling, dog sledding, downhill and cross country skiing, snowshoeing and ice fishing in the winter. In addition there are the incredible Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis)!
