Increased access to education has proven to positively influence health outcomes. The Alberta Blue Cross scholarship program was the organization’s first non-employee-driven community impact program. It was established with the initial endowment and formation of their foundation (the ABC Benefits Corporation Foundation) in 1998. Alberta Blue Cross knows that supporting education improves the wellness of their communities. And they’re proud to support all their scholarship recipients through their educational journeys and beyond. Supporting more than 70 scholarships each year, their scholarships range from $750 to $1,500.
The scholarships are awarded to full-time students based on academic achievement and financial need. Specific colleges and universities may have extra eligibility criteria, please view their listing of the scholarship or contact the institution for more information.
