More Funding Announced for High School Apprenticeship Scholarship
The Government of Alberta announced that it is supporting high school students pursuing trades education by increasing the scholarship program. The province has injected an additional $1 million into the expanded program that recognizes the achievements of high school graduates who have chosen an apprenticeship pathway. The chamber network supports preparing students to meet labour needs and ensuring that our students graduate with the skills they need in order to be successful post graduation in the job market.
Qualified high school graduates in either the Registered Apprenticeship Program (RAP) or Career and Technology Studies (CTS) apprenticeship programs will receive a $1,000 scholarship. In addition, qualified graduates who have completed both a RAP and a CTS programs will receive a $2,000 Bright Future, High School Apprenticeship Scholarship.
