The Adult Basic Education Student Assistance Program (ABESAP) provides needs-based grants to learners enrolled in developmental programs. These needs-based grants, provided by the BC Ministry of Advanced Education, are intended to assist in reducing financial barriers for eligible students enrolled in ABESAP-approved courses.
The following costs associated with developmental programs may be offset by ABESAP funding for eligible applicants:
- Tuition for developmental courses, if applicable;- Required textbooks;- Transportation (U-Pass or equivalent credit);- Required supplies;- Unsubsidized childcare costs
Financial Aid and Awards accepts ABESAP applications from students each semester during pre-determined application periods. Although this is a government-funded program, completed application forms are to be submitted to Financial Aid and Awards at Capilano University, who will facilitate application processing on behalf of applicants and the BC Ministry of Advanced Education. Please view the top of this webpage for updated application periods for each semester.
