Grants, Funding and Bursaries

Government Grants

Student Aid Alberta offers grants to full- and part-time students needing additional money to pay for their educational expenses. Students planning to study at SAIT can apply for grants when applying for student loans. Full-time students can apply online, while part-time students will need to fill out and mail in an application to Student Aid Alberta. Students have part-time status if they are registered in less than 60 per cent of a full-time program load.

Scholarships, bursaries and awards

SAIT has a number of scholarships, awards and bursaries to encourage academic achievement or assist students needing financial aid.

The list of awards for each program is available through academic departments and can be found in the SAIT Student Awards Guide. Bursaries and loans can be combined.

SAIT reserves the right to adjust the amount or designation of published awards if circumstances require it.

Skills Investment Program (SIP)

Government funding for tuition, books and living expenses is available for eligible students planning to take English Language Foundations and/or Academic Upgrading. Contact Funding Advising with questions or to find out more about the SIP application process.

The Immigrant Access Fund (IAF)

If you're an immigrant looking to work in your trade or profession here in Canada, you can apply for micro-loans through the Immigrant Access Fund (IAF) to help pay for the costs associated with getting Canadian accreditation or the necessary training to allow you to work in your industry here.

These IAF loans can help you move out of low-level or low-income jobs, become self-reliant and contribute to Canada's economy. For more information, visit Funding Advising in MC221, the Stan Grad Centre or head to the IAF website.
