Scholarships and Bursaries

There are many opportunities to access scholarships and bursaries through various organizations. We strongly encourage students to apply for any awards they are eligible for - many scholarships/bursaries go unclaimed each year due to lack of student response/applications.

The University of Saskatchewan College of Nursing has established a $5,000 entrance scholarship for incoming first year graduate students of Aboriginal ancestry. Students of Aboriginal ancestry are automatically considered for the scholarship upon acceptance into a graduate nursing program and do not need to apply separately.

For helpful tips on application success, please see our Tips for Success PDF document.
