Each year, the Association awards two fellowships to ATA members who are entering, or in the first year of full-time study (as defined by the institution) in a doctoral program in education at a recognized Alberta public university. The fellowship program is intended to recognize academic excellence and to help defray the financial costs of university study.
If an appropriate doctoral program does not exist in Alberta, the applicant may be entering or in his or her first year of study in a doctoral program in education in a recognized public Canadian university. To be considered for this exception the applicant must provide formal documentation to prove that there is no similar program available in Alberta.
