The government announcement, Putting Alberta’s growing savings to work for our future, states: “$200 million will be added to the Alberta Heritage Scholarship Fund to help apprentices complete their programs, engage industry, and support excellence across the apprenticeship, trades and technology system. Endowment earnings will go towards filling gaps in our apprenticeship system to ensure our apprentices are getting the support they need to finish their education and that our economy is getting the skilled workers needed for continued success.”
