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, Workplace Essential Skills Training or English as a Second Language. 

For courses starting April 1, 2022 to March 31, 2023, the Adult Upgrading Grant Application is now available. Be sure to email your application and 2021 proof of income to FinancialAidInfo@viu.ca before the start of classes.

Apply for AUG before you pay any fees or purchase textbooks.  Refunds cannot be issued.
