QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
Does AAG provide post-secondary funding?
The AAG is a non profit organization, our funding comes as operational dollars. We have put some dollars aside for Training initiatives for members of the community. We do not have a large enough budget to fund post-secondary funding or living allowances, but we can try to help guide you to possible funding sources as well.
We do have an annual Golf Tournament and other fundraisers that we put toward our Atoske Education Fund. These are small grants that can be applied for as last resort funding options.
How do you apply for the Atoske Education Fund?
The primary purpose of the Atoske Education Fund is to provide funding to help people overcome barriers to training and employment that are not usually covered by other funding sources and are required for employment or a training program.
