Student Awards

Through the generous support of our donors, SAIT is proud to offer over $5 million in awards to students in almost every program. Awards are available to all qualifying SAIT students in recognition of academic success, financial need, community involvement and other areas of success and support.

COVID-19 Update

Good news! Student Awards will continue to be selected for this year despite the COVID-19 disruption. SAIT's Student Awards team is working diligently to assess and select recipients. Selected recipients will receive their award directly into their bank accounts.

If you are the recipient of a Student Award, you will receive an email to your SAIT email address with award disbursement information.

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 to their SAIT email address with more information.  

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

How will I receive my payment?

NEW! Award, bursary and emergency funding payments by e-Transfer 

Effective Jan. 22, 2021 award, bursary and emergency funding payments will be issued by email money transfer (e-Transfer) directly to the student.  

What’s an e-Transfer?

e-Transfers are a fast and convenient way to receive a payment within the security of your online or mobile banking service.  

Watch your SAIT email

After your award, bursary or emergency funding has been processed, you’ll receive an email to your SAIT email address (firstname.lastname@edu.sait.ca). This first email is to advise you a payment has been initiated by SAIT. The email will come from PayMyTuition

Domestic students You’ll receive a second email to let you know when your payment is on the way. Once you receive the second email, you can expect a third email with the actual e-Transfer link from Interac within the next 24 hours.  

International students You'll receive a second email requesting your banking information.

If you’re unsure what your SAIT email address is, you can find out by logging into  mySAIT and selecting "Personal Information" on the mySAIT tab. 

If you don’t have a SAIT email address on file, you’ll receive these notifications via the preferred email address you have provided. 

Access your payment

Follow the instructions in the email.  

Domestic students will need a password to access the payment: 

  • after you receive the email from Interac, login to mySAIT 
  • click on the "myStudent" tab 
  • click on "Finance information" 
  • click on the link within the "Collect Refund, Award, Bursary or Emergency Funding" section 
  • the Refund Authorization ID is the password referenced in the Interac email 

International students will need to click on the link in the email and enter their banking information to access the e-Transfer payment. Follow the instructions provided in the email from PayMyTuition. Payments will be issued in Canadian dollars. 

Email reminders

Up to eight email reminders will be sent to advise an e-Transfer payment is available. After the eighth email reminder, the payment will be cancelled or reissued.   

Transaction limits

If an award, bursary or emergency funding payment exceeds $10,000 the payment will be distributed over multiple transfers in $10,000 increments. For example, if the total payment is $25,000, three e-Transfers will be issued over three 24-hour periods and each transfer will have a unique Refund Authorization ID.
