Institutional Support of Entrepreneurship Education

Back to all Programs

Building an entrepreneurial culture in Alberta

Access to experiential learning opportunities in entrepreneurship is the key to empowering Albertans to participate in our province’s growing economy. The Institutional Support of Entrepreneurship Education (ISEE) program provides Alberta’s publicly funded institutions and other innovative organizations with funding to offer entrepreneurial learning opportunities to secondary and post-secondary students and recent graduates, to help them develop an entrepreneurial mindset for their futures in a knowledge-based economy. 

How the program works

ISEE supports Alberta’s publicly funded institutions and Alberta non-profit organizations to deliver entrepreneurship education and training in Alberta. Eligible projects can receive up to $15,000 in funding.

Projects funded by ISEE should have the following outcomes:

  • Develop an entrepreneurial mindset in Albertan students through the delivery of local and provincial programming.
  • Provide entrepreneurship education and experiential learning opportunities.
  • Cultivate a stronger entrepreneurial culture.

We will determine the investment amount based on the scope of the proposed project and approval of outlined costs in the proposed budget.
