Grants can also help cover your educational costs. Grants don’t have to be repaid unless your eligibility changes.
Who can get full-time grants?
Grants are for students with special circumstances including, but not limited to, students from lower income families and *students with disabilities.
*You must be a person with a permanent disability, or persistent or prolonged disability as defined by the Canada Student Financial Assistance Program and provide acceptable documentation.
You’re automatically considered for grants based on the information you provide on your application. There are limits to the amount of Alberta student grant funding available.
List of full-time grants
Below is a list of all the grants full-time students are automatically considered for. There is a limit on Alberta grant funding available each year. If you do not receive grant funding, you may still be eligible to receive the maximum annual and lifetime loan amount available for each year you are in school.
If you qualify for a grant, Student Aid tells you in your award letter.
To estimate how much money you’ll get, use the Student Financial Assistance Estimator.
Losing grant money if your situation changes
There are circumstances where you have to pay back some or all of your grant money. This is called grant overpayment.
This happens when your living or education situation changes and you are no longer eligible for the grant. In this case, Student Aid converts the money into a loan.
The most common reason students have grant overpayments is because they drop classes and are no longer eligible for full-time grants.
- If you withdraw from classes within 30 days of your start date all your grant money will be converted to a loan
- If you withdraw from classes more than 30 days after your start date
Student Aid will determine how much of your grant money will be converted to a loan.
Grant overpayments can also happen if:
- you contact Student Aid to report a change in your personal information that reduces your financial eligibility.
- you complete your application incorrectly.
