The NADC Bursary is a return service bursary of $6,000 per year for a maximum of two years, and is offered to students entering their last two years of post-secondary studies or entering a program that is one or two years in length. It is meant to encourage students to train for jobs that are in demand in northern Alberta.
The NADC Bursary program provides up to $12,000 over two years and is non-repayable if you agree to live and work in the north. Your return service is one year of full time employment in your field of studies for each year of bursary support received. Students must apply for the bursary for each year they want to be considered. Some careers in high demand now include education, medical and health, engineering and technical fields and social work.
To be eligible to apply for the NADC bursary, you must:
A) Have been a resident of Alberta for 12 consecutive months before the start of your program,
B) Be enrolled or have applied for a full-time post-secondary program designated for provincial funding,
C) Be entering your last or second to last year of your post-secondary program in the fall,
D) Be in a program that is at least 12 weeks in length for a half bursary and 16 weeks in length for a full bursary, and
E) Not be in default of a provincial student loan.
