Language Bursaries

The Language Teacher Bursary program was created by an endowment to the Alberta Heritage Scholarship Fund as part of the Government of Alberta’s Economic Development Strategy.

The program will assist certificated Alberta teachers to take a summer post-secondary program in a language other than English or language pedagogy course at an institution outside of Canada. Applicants will benefit from the enhanced pedagogical and language skills of their teachers, encouraging them to take up the challenge of learning a new language making them more globally competitive.
