Bissett Bursary Program
Thanks to the generosity of Calgary philanthropist David Bissett, SAIT is able to offer full tuition annually to high school graduates who demonstrate financial need and an interest in continuing their education at SAIT.
Through the Bissett Bursary Program, students will receive up to $13,000 in tuition over a two-year period to attend SAIT.
Once enrolled, SAIT will connect these students with academic coaches and mentors to support their academic success. Students' progress is monitored throughout the duration of their program. Students who maintain their grades through their first year of studies will be eligible for funding for the second year of their studies.
Selection and Criteria
Students are chosen for the program based on demonstrated financial need, community involvement, career planning and academic success in high school. Students are encouraged to apply and submit an application. Guidance counsellors and success coaches from the schools will review and make recommendations to SAIT based on the above criteria.
Apply through your guidance counsellor or success coach at any time.
