Helping local learners achieve their academic goals.
Supporting industry and diversifying our economy.
Getting a post-secondary education can be costly, and most institutions tend to be in major urban centres. This is not an ideal situation for community members who want to embark upon — or continue — a path of learning.
The Town of Drayton Valley's Zero Fee Tuition Program partners with respected institutions to provide sought-after avenues of learning right here in the community. What's more, the program covers up to $5,000 in tuition for local students who qualify.
Drayton Valley Councillor Amila Gammana has been a strong advocate for the Zero Fee Tuition Program since its inception.
Councillor Gammana shares his thoughts on community building, economic diversification, and realizing the full potential of this unique, made-in-Drayton initiative.
Explore your options at one of the post-secondary institutions we've partnered with. Some courses are provided via remote learning, and others are taught at the Clean Energy Technology Centre here in town.
Make sure you fit the application threshold, then complete your Zero Fee Tuition Program application. Show all the funding sources available to you, and explain how the program will affect your circumstances.
Funding is contingent upon your successful completion of the program you've chosen. If you don't finish, you may be obligated to pay back some or all of the Zero Fee Tuition Program funding you've been granted.
