Financial Aid

Now that you have made one of the most important decisions in your life - to pursue a post-secondary education, you have undoubtedly discovered that it is a considerable investment. Education is a powerful investment in you.

Your transformative Christian higher education will enable you to make a difference in the world, whether as a ministry worker at a church or a working professional in the marketplace.

We want to help you make that investment through scholarships, bursaries or student loans. According to Alberta Student Aid, Open Government Program, “Alberta continues to provide among the most generous scholarship funding in Canada, more than 50,600 Alberta students shared $96 million”.

We are here to help you!

The Financial Aid & Awards office offers you a variety of services that include:
