Alberta will give $1,000 bursaries to volunteering students

500 available this fall


The Government of Alberta will start awarding $1,000 bursaries to students who volunteer with a non-profit organization. There are 500 available this fall and another 1,000 are expected by the third year of the program, according to a press release. The Serving Communities Internship Program will be available to students at any Alberta post-secondary institution, from certificate to PhD-level-students. Premier Ed Stelmach said that the program is an opportunity for students to “sharpen their skills” while making a bit of money.
