Fund helps build the next century of student success at SAIT
For 100 years, SAIT has proudly helped build a stronger Alberta and better Canada through generations of exceptional students. To mark this important milestone, SAIT created the SAIT Centennial Award – an endowment fund that will help students for years to come.
The goal is to raise $50,000 that SAIT will match, creating a historic $100,000 endowment fund. The interest will generate an annual award of $3,500 for a student in financial need.
“There is no more appropriate way, in my mind, to recognize and celebrate SAIT’s 100th anniversary than to create an award for the benefit of students,” says Brian Bowman, Director for SAIT Alumni and Development. “We encourage you to join us in investing in the bright futures of deserving SAIT students who demonstrate academic success and leadership.”
The interest will generate an annual award of $3,500 for students in financial need.
Applicants for the new award will have a chance to draw on the centennial themes SAIT Cares, SAIT Celebrates, and SAIT Inspires and share how their education at SAIT inspired them to be involved in their community by writing a vision essay as part of their award application.
“The future recipients of the SAIT Centennial Award will demonstrate ambition and ingenuity and will be an inspiration to all,” says Bowman. “By investing in the SAIT Centennial Award, you will help launch the beginning of another remarkable century for SAIT.”
Contributions to the SAIT Centennial Award can be made online or over the phone by calling 403.774.5214.
