Through the generous support of our donors, SAIT is proud to offer over $5 million in awards to students in almost every program. Awards are available to all qualifying SAIT students in recognition of academic success, financial need, community involvement and other areas of success and support.

COVID-19 Update

Good news! Student Awards will continue to be selected for this year despite the COVID-19 disruption. SAIT's Student Awards team is working diligently to assess and select recipients. Selected recipients will receive their award directly into their bank accounts.

If you are the recipient of a Student Award, you will receive an email to your SAIT email address with award disbursement information.
