Scholarships and Financial Assistance

  1. Scholarships do not simply fall into a student’s lap. It takes time and effort to find scholarships that you are eligible for. It is important to be prepared for applying for scholarships as often they require letters of reference, transcripts, or a personal reflection. Here are some tips on how to be prepared for applying for scholarships. 

  1. Student Service offices are often notified about community scholarships, which we make available to students through the Regina Public Schools website and posters outside of guidance. This list is not comprehensive, and students are encouraged to search out additional scholarship opportunities. 

  1. In the spring of each year, application forms are made available for Internal Scholarships. Please talk with your advisory teacher or guidance for more information. 

  1. Every post-secondary institution has their own entrance scholarships. It is important to look at the institutions you are applying or have been accepted to so that you do not miss out.

  1. Student Loans: In Saskatchewan, students who apply for Student Loans are automatically considered for three forms of financial assistance. In addition to student loans, you will also be automatically considered for grants and bursaries from both the Government of Canada and the Government of Saskatchewan. That is money for school that students won't need to ever pay back! Last year, 56% of the Saskatchewan assistance provided was non-repayable. Fall applications for student loans will be available online in June at www.canlearn.ca. You can also visit their website now and try out the Student Financial Assistance Estimator and find out based on your financial situation, how much funding you may be eligible for to attend a post-secondary institution. 

  1. There are many other opportunities for funding and here are just a few to get you started:
