Canadian Armed Forces Members Recognized with the Saskatchewan Scholarship of Honour

Released on November 7, 2016

Advanced Education Minister Bronwyn Eyre recognized 15 new recipients of the Saskatchewan Scholarship of Honour at the Saskatchewan Legislature today.

The scholarship honours returning soldiers as well as the spouses and children of injured or fallen members of Canada’s Armed Forces.  The scholarship provides a one-time award of $5,000 towards post-secondary education.

“Our government is forever grateful to the many men and women serving in Canada’s Armed Forces,” Eyre said.  “This scholarship is a token of our gratitude and respect for their bravery and will help them pursue their post-secondary studies. Because of them, Canada is a safe and peaceful nation.”

Since the Scholarship was started in 2009, 162 scholarships have been awarded, totalling $810,000.  Thirteen of these recipients are family members of injured or fallen soldiers.

Eligible candidates must be current or former Saskatchewan residents.  They must be returning service men and women who actively served in designated military operations in the Canadian Forces (Regular or Reserves) after January 2001.  The spouse and/or child of permanently disabled or deceased individuals who served in designated military operations after January 2001 may also be eligible.  All candidates must be enrolled in a recognized Canadian post-secondary institution. Eligible candidates are encouraged to apply.

The Ministry of Advanced Education works with the federal government to distribute scholarship information to returning soldiers and their families.
