FINANCIAL AID FOR ESL STUDENTS IN ALBERTA

Financial aid for ESL students in the province are somewhat limited. Visa students are not eligible for loans run by the province's student aid office. However, loan assistance may be available to international students through the International Education Finance Corporation (IEFC).

In terms of scholarships and award money, the government of Canada maintains a database of scholarships for non-Canadians, which is searchable by your country of origin. As well, there may be some scholarship money available from the school you plan to attend. For instance, at some universities and colleges offering ESL programs, all new students are automatically considered for entrance scholarships regardless of what they plan to study or of where they are applying from.
