The Educational Partnership Foundation (TEPF) is pleased to offer a Trades Careers Apprenticeship Bursary for students who have completed our Trades Careers program and are pursuing their career in trades.
Trades Careers Bursary Student Criteria:
The goal of the Trades Careers Apprenticeship Bursary is to support and remove barriers for Trades Careers students who are on their path to becoming a certified journeyperson. This bursary is available to students for each level of apprenticeship education, to a maximum of four bursaries (total of $2000). The $500 bursary can be used to pay for living, education and work-related expenses such as rent, bills, groceries, gas, books, tools, boots, safety gear, etc. while in school for apprenticeship education.
Congratulations to our 2021 and 2022 Trades Careers bursary recipients Trey, Andrew, Tanner, and Adale.
The number of bursaries available each year may fluctuate, and applications will be accepted from January to December. A notification will be posted on this site if bursaries are fully awarded.
The Derald Fretts Memorial Bursary of $500 yearly has been set up to honour Derald’s love, passion and commitment to students, education and the Alberta community.
Derald had an illustrious 32-year teaching career starting at Crescent Heights High School (1973-1991), followed by Ernest Manning High School (1991-1997). In 1995 he was a Finalist for the Excellence in Teaching Awards. He finished his career with the Calgary Board of Education in the downtown office as the Coordinator of Corporate Partnerships (1997-2005), and in 1997 he was the recipient of the Mayor’s Excellence Award for “excellence in the promotion of Partnerships”.
We are very excited to be able to honour Derald’s memory as a well-loved Calgary teacher and continue to support his legacy of inspiring and elevating students’ success. One bursary will be awarded annually.
Congratulations Cody K. of Calgary who was the recipient of the 2020 Derald Fretts Memorial Bursary.

Flames Ambassadors Trades Bursary Student Criteria:
The goal of the Flames Ambassadors Trades Bursary is to support and remove barriers for trades students. This bursary is available to students in any level of apprenticeship education, and a maximum of one bursary per year will be awarded.

The Calgary Flames Ambassadors are a group of approximately 50 business individuals who represent the Calgary Flames in the community and support various fund-raising initiatives for the Calgary Flames Foundation charity.
The group was originally created in 1998 when a handful of passionate fans and business leaders bounded together to help bolster season ticket sales during a particularly challenging stretch for the team, known then as “Save the Flames”. The group evolved and became involved in various Flames initiatives, and the term “Ambassador” was coined in 2002.
Since then, we’ve grown to include business leaders from across Calgary, united by a common passion for the Calgary Flames and a desire to give back to the community through volunteerism and philanthropy.
The Ambassadors’ marquee event is the annual Celebrity Poker Tournament, and we’re heavily involved in various other fund-raising initiatives such as the Paint the Town Red luxury dining experience, past Celebrity Roasts, galas and various other community events in support of the Calgary Flames Foundation.
The Foundation supports various deserving initiatives in education, health & wellness and amateur/grassroots sports, including the Rotary Flames House, Kids Cancer Care Foundation, YMCA Grade 6 Free Membership Program, KidSport Calgary Even Strength Program and various post-secondary scholarships.
The Calgary Flames Ambassadors have helped raise over $8 million dollars to date for the Foundation and we’re proud to support positive change in the lives of thousands of Southern Albertans every year.
