Who may apply?

If you are enrolled at SAIT as a continuous, full-time student or apprentice you may be eligible to apply.

There are exceptions for part-time and distance learning students that are outlined in the guide, so please review the criteria carefully.

I'm an international student — am I eligible?

International students who are citizens from any country other than Canada and who have been accepted at SAIT on a student visa are eligible for SAIT student awards. In order to collect the award, however, an international student must have either a Social Insurance Number (SIN) or an Individual Tax Number (ITN).

International students should contact the SAIT International Centre for details and assistance. The Centre may also suggest other awards that are directed specifically to international students.

How will I know if I win an award?

The Alumni and Development office will notify students selected for awards within four months of the application deadline. Recipients will receive an email, telephone call or a letter with information about when and how to pick up the awards package.

If you have further questions, please refer to the Student Awards Guide or email scholarships@sait.ca.
