ESL and Academic Upgrading Funding
The Foundational Learning Assistance Program, formerly known as Alberta Works, provides funding for Albertans in designated full-time and part-time programs. Advance Education determines learner eligibility and may include a monthly living allowance depending on full or part-time study status and a financial need assessment.
ESL and Academic Upgrading
Applications for the Foundational Learning Assistance program for the spring term are now closed. Check back here in late June for applications for fall and winter funding.
To prepare for your application, please apply for a verified Alberta Digital ID. Please note that it may take up to 10 days to receive your verified digital ID.
Please note that the government has discontinued the Training Provider Information (TPI) Form. This means you do not need to complete this form to apply for funding.
