$8,750 in Scholarships From CAA Saskatchewan Available to 2021 Saskatchewan Graduates

At this time of year, many graduating high school students are busy researching and applying for postsecondary scholarships. Since 2006, CAA Saskatchewan has provided annual entrance scholarships to Saskatchewan’s three educational institutions including the University of Saskatchewan, University of Regina, and Saskatchewan Polytechnic. Each educational institution administers the scholarships, including the application forms and selection of successful candidates. The applicants are evaluated on academic excellence, economic needs, and other factors, including participation in extra-curricular activities or community involvement.

The scholarships at the University of Saskatchewan and the University of Regina are $2,500 at each institution. Applicants must be either a CAA Saskatchewan member or a child of a member, and a Saskatchewan resident.

At Saskatchewan Polytechnic, the CAA Saskatchewan Scholarships are $3,750 in total and include the Automotive Service Technician Program at the Saskatoon Campus ($1,250) and at the Moose Jaw Campus ($1,250), plus the Auto Body Technician Certificate Program ($1,250) at the Regina Campus. The CAA scholarships at Saskatchewan Polytechnic are available May 1 to July 31st to CAA Saskatchewan Members and non-members.

“This school term has indeed been challenging for all students,” said Fred Titanich, President & CEO, CAA Saskatchewan. “We are pleased to help students continue their educational journey through the CAA Scholarship program. Best wishes and congratulations to all successful applicants.”

Last year’s recipient of the University of Regina Scholarship was Jenna Meili who is studying business with hopes of becoming a lawyer. “The CAA Scholarship has helped me focus on doing the best that I can in class,” said Meili. “The generosity of CAA has inspired me to one day help other students achieve their goals, just as the organization helped me.”
