How it works

Jason Lang Scholarships

Once your initial eligibility to receive a Jason Lang Scholarship is determined by the Student Awards Office, we will submit a list of nominees to Student Aid Alberta. To confirm that your name is on the list of nominees, click on 'View/Accept/Decline Awards' in your Student Centre, and select the 2015 award year. If you see a status of "External Disbursement" next to the Jason Lang Scholarship, your name has been submitted. Student Aid Alberta will confirm your final eligibility.

If you are a recipient of the Jason Lang Scholarship, you will receive a cheque mailed directly to your home address from Student Aid Alberta in April provided that you are enrolled full-time in the winter term.
