The scholarships are awarded by Community Development and funded by the Alberta Heritage Scholarship Fund. Scholarships ranging in amounts from $1,000 to $5,000 are awarded each December to students whose studies and career goals will ultimately contribute to the advancement of women, or those who are studying in fields where members of their gender are traditionally few in number. Both men and women may apply for the scholarships.
