Elevate your career

The Level Up Alumni Awards are a perk created just for you — a valued member of the SAIT alumni family. Whether you are interested in completely reinventing your career or simply adding new skills to your resume, SAIT has a solution for you. And because SAIT wants to partner with you on this journey, we have created three student awards offered exclusively to SAIT alumni.

Thanks to the generosity of our donors on Giving Day 2021, we can support even more alumni returning to SAIT to upskills or build their skillset.
