The scholarships are made possible through the generosity of local businesses and organizations, community members, Parkland College staff, the annual Dollars for Scholars Golf Classic, and the Ministry of Advanced Education’s Saskatchewan Innovation & Opportunity Scholarship program.

The Saskatchewan Innovation & Opportunity Scholarship program is a matching program in which funds are provided on a dollar-for-dollar basis with local non-government donors.  For every dollar raised locally, the province will match that dollar to support scholarships for high academic achievers.

Students interested in learning more about scholarship opportunities at Parkland College are encouraged to stop by one of the five campuses in Canora, Esterhazy, Fort Qu’Appelle, Melville or Yorkton, or visit scholarships.parklandcollege.sk.ca to view scholarship opportunities. Internal scholarships for students enrolled in Parkland College programs will be awarded in March 2015. Applications for those awards will be available to students beginning in December.
