College students receive entrance awards

Earlier this month, full-time post-secondary and university students at all Southeast College campuses received a total of $57,500 in entrance awards.

These awards are created with proceeds from events such as the Swing for Scholarships golf tournaments held in June in Estevan and September in Weyburn, and include matching funds from the Ministry of Advanced Education through the Saskatchewan Innovation and Opportunity Scholarship program.

“The entrance award program benefits current full-time students who enrolled in their programs before June 30th,” said Dave Harazny, manager of college advancement for Southeast College. “This is the fourth consecutive year we have provided entrance awards, and we are proud to assist students financially as they pursue their post-secondary education locally.”

In addition to the entrance awards, Southeast College also provides application-based scholarships and bursaries thanks to support from local donors and organizations. Completed entirely online, the scholarship and bursary application process began for current students on Nov. 1.

“That's an additional $100,000 we will award Southeast College students in the spring,” said Harazny.

Looking ahead, the college has already made plans for full-time post-secondary programs starting in fall 2019. The full line-up of 2019-20 programs including both full-time and university based programs can be viewed on the college’s website.

Students can also access full details on submitting an application, entrance award criteria and frequently asked questions.
