Adult Upgrading Grant Funding

The Adult Upgrading Grant (AUG) is funding from the provincial government that you do not pay back. It is for students enrolled in Adult Basic Education (ABE), Workplace Essential Skills Training (WEST) or English as a Second Language (ESL). 

Apply for AUG before you pay any fees or purchase textbooks. Refunds cannot be issued. It is recommended you apply before your start date. The deadline to apply is by your fee due date.

The  2024-2025 Adult Upgrading Grant Application is available for courses starting April 1, 2024 to March 31, 2025. Instructions for applying can be found below under How do I apply for the Adult Upgrading Grant?
