RAP/CTS Scholarships

RAP Scholarships were created to recognize the accomplishments of Alberta high school students participating in the Registered Apprenticeship Program (RAP)

RAP Scholarships encourage students to continue their apprenticeship training after completing high school. In 2012, RAP Scholarships were expanded to include students who have completed a Career and Technology Studies (CTS) apprenticeship pathway. 

All students who will have graduated from high school in June of this year, are registered apprentices and have at least one period of formal education remaining, will be considered for a scholarship.

Donors

Funds for these scholarships are provided by a joint investment of contributions from the private sector and the Alberta Heritage Scholarship Fund.

For more information about the contributors to the scholarship fund, see Scholarship Donors.
