Level Up Alumni Awards
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 upskill or build their skillset.
There are three types of student awards available for SAIT graduates:
- Credit awards — For full-time students accepted into a certificate, diploma or degree program (applications are being accepted for the 2022-2023 academic year)
- Continuing education awards — For students registering in a continuing education or professional studies course (applications are currently closed)
SAIT graduates who have been accepted into a full-time certificate, diploma or degree program at SAIT are eligible to apply for a Level Up Alumni Award.
There are up to 150 awards available, which will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis.
What is the value of the award?
- $1500 each for full time students on entry to a certificate, diploma or degree program at SAIT.
