Student Scholarships and Student Bursaries
Scholarships for students entering apprenticeship programs from high school are typically awarded to outstanding new students. Bursaries are available to students and are more typically based on a combination of academic achievement and financial need and/or achievement in other areas such as leadership and community service. These awards may be offered by high schools, professional organizations, local businesses and national chains, and charitable foundations. They may be available on a non-renewable or renewable basis.
Student Loans and Grants
Student loans and grants are other types of financial aid available to both students and parents. Most provincial governments offer apprenticeship incentive grants as a means of encouraging high school students to transition to a trade.
