Saskatchewan Advantage Scholarship

The Saskatchewan Advantage Scholarship (SAS) provides all new grade 12 graduates, including Adult Basic Education (ABE) and GED® students, up to $500 per year, to a lifetime maximum of $2,000, to be applied to their tuition costs at a Saskatchewan post-secondary institution.

  • You are enrolled at a Saskatchewan post-secondary institution in a program that is recognized for Canada-Saskatchewan student loans (certificate, diploma, and degree programs) or an apprenticeship program.

With the exception of both Lakeland College campuses and specific specialized health programs, programs at post-secondary institutions outside of Saskatchewan are not eligible.


2. How to Apply

The post-secondary institution that you attend will apply for the scholarship on your behalf.
