The Southeast College has announced that its students have received $16,500 in scholarships and bursaries from its Estevan campus.
The awards were distributed to students in various Estevan programs including heavy equipment and truck and transport technician, industrial mechanic and first-year university.
This year a formal luncheon was unable to take place, but that did not subtract from the value of the awards.
“We are incredibly proud of our students, and everything they have achieved, and continue to work towards,” said Kassandra Lawrenz, manager of college advancement. “Student awards are a great opportunity not only to celebrate the work our students put in, but also to recognize and express our most sincere gratitude to the outstanding support we receive from the community and our partners.”
Southeast College scholarships and bursaries are made possible by donations from community organizations, businesses and individuals, as well as various fundraising events such as the College’s Swing for Scholarships Golf Tournaments. Eligible funds are matched by the Ministry of Advanced Education through the Saskatchewan Innovation and Opportunity Scholarship (SIOS) program.
