The Jason Lang scholarship program was established to honor Jason Lang, a 17-year-old student who died on April 28, 1999, from a school shooting at Columbine High School, Alberta.

You may think getting a grand is not a big deal, but consider how many students have benefitted from this scholarship program since its birth. The Lang Scholarship recognizes and rewards Alberta post-secondary students for their academic achievements and encourages them to continue in their undergraduate or professional program of study.

The Government of Alberta funds the scholarships in conjunction with Alberta Student Aid. This organization offers scholarships, grants, and loans to Alberta’s post-secondary students.

This article discussed Lang’s scholarship requirements, how to apply, its worth, and the closing date.
