*NEW* Online Learning Grant (Travel On Hold)

Deadline: October 2, 2020

In light of current restrictions on travel, HCIP has instituted an Online Learning grant stream to temporarily take the place of the Travel grant. These funds, to a maximum of $2,000, provide assistance for individuals to participate in online courses, workshops, or virtual conferences to gain new skills to support the development of heritage work in Edmonton.

In order to make the most of available resources, applicants are encouraged, if eligible, to apply to the Canada-Alberta Job Grant to support the proposed online learning opportunity. Eligibility criteria and application requirements for this grant are available here.

Who Is Eligible?

To be eligible, the applicant must be a Canadian citizen or permanent resident over the age of 18 who is actively involved in heritage work in the Edmonton Metropolitan Region.

Please note the following discrepancy in the guidelines. Through this funding stream, HCIP covers costs for learning opportunities beginning at any point from June 2020 to February 2021. The learning opportunity needs to be complete by November 2021. The application timeline on the PDF form incorrectly indicates that the opportunities must begin between March 2020 and September 2020, and that they must be completed by July 21.

Please defer to the information bolded above rather than what is listed in the guidelines.

Please download the PDF files before filling in the different fields.

Who Is Not Eligible?

The applicant cannot already have been awarded an HCIP Online Learning or Travel Grant during the calendar year and must not have any overdue final reports or extensions from other HCIP grants.

HCIP excludes educational institutions and government-owned and/or operated facilities. Individuals employed by these institutions are also ineligible, unless they can demonstrate that the project is outside of their professional role within the organization and will be of value to the broader heritage sector.

Online learning opportunities that are part of an ongoing educational program are not eligible at this time.

What Is the Deadline?

The next Online Learning Grant deadline is October 2 at 4:00pm.

Please submit your application as a single-document PDF to grants@edmontonheritage.ca. In-person submission will not be accepted for this grant intake.
