Opportunity for Additional Student Funding

The Lesser Slave Forest Education Society is also a partner with the Bursary Partnership fund of the Northern Alberta Development Council (NADC). As such, students may be eligible to receive matching funds under the NADC Bursary Partnership Program. This would double the award to $1,000. Your participation in the NADC Bursary Partnerships fund is optional and should be weighed in light of the following paragraph.

After you graduate, the NADC bursary requires you to live and work in northern Alberta. For every $500 in NADC funds, you commit to provide 1 month of return service in a profession related to field of studies with an employer of your choosing in northern Alberta. Recipients who do not meet this requirement must repay the bursary. Students must be entered in a full time post-secondary program to be eligible for NADC funding.
