Student Awards help foster success
Applications accepted three times a year
Sask Polytech continues to find new ways to support its students as they work towards their educational and career goals. And through generous donations from donors and alumni, Sask Polytech can provide $2 million of financial support each school year.
The Student Awards Program aims to help students worry less about how to pay for school and focus more on cultivating their own success. Any student can apply and selection is often based on academic achievement, financial need or a combination of the two. Some awards have added requirements such as examples of volunteerism or career goals
No matter why a student applies, one thing remains constant — the awards are a big help. Here are some words of thanks from previous award winners.
I cannot thank you enough giving me the opportunity to receive this award. As a wife, full time student and mother of two beautiful daughters this award will greatly impact me. I used to work full time and now my husband is carrying the load of provider for our family and this bursary will help to pay some of my education for next year as I enter my second year of the Practical Nursing program. I love the fact that Eleanor was herself a nurse and is helping to make it possible for future nurses to make their career goals possible. You have helped touch my life and I hope to pay it forward in the future. Thank you once again!

I would like to say that receiving this award has been a big help to me and my family. I attended the first year of my construction electrician course a few months after having my first child Ruby. The award will help us financially through the next year.
The award also motivates me to keep trying my hardest on my path to becoming a journeyman electrician knowing that my efforts in school have not gone unnoticed.
