These scholarships are made possible through the generosity of local businesses and organizations, community members, Parkland College staff, and the Ministry of Advanced Education’s Saskatchewan Innovation & Opportunity Scholarship (SIOS) program. SIOS 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 matches that dollar to support scholarships, as available.

“Our scholarship program wouldn’t exist without tremendous support from the community and the Ministry of Advanced Education,” said scholarship committee chair Brendan Wagner. “As we welcome more and more post-secondary students to our campuses, it’s vital that our scholarship program keeps pace.”

Applications for those awards will be available to students beginning in December.
