Scholarships, Awards and Bursaries

Edwards School of Business Scholarships, Awards and Bursaries

The Edwards School of Business Scholarship Committee administers a number of scholarships and bursaries for both entering and continuing students. Awards have specific criteria based on academic achievement, financial need, student background, and leadership skills. The awards are divided into two groups with application deadlines being March 31st and September 30th annually.

Through the generosity of alumni and friends, these scholarships, awards and bursaries amount to over $1.3 million annually ranging from $200 - $10,000 each.

Whether you are a continuing student or an entering student, we have a number of awards that you can apply for. For detailed information please review all University of Saskatchewan Scholarships and Bursaries at https://students.usask.ca/money/scholarships.php. There are general awards and there are Edwards specific awards, so to find the Edwards awards simply type “Edwards” in the search for awards section to find what you are looking for.

If you are required to complete the Financial Need Calculator for Edwards School of Business awards, you can log in using your NSID and password at https://sesd.usask.ca/need/continuing. The Financial Need Calculator which is currently open is the "Financial Need Calculator - 2019-2020 Academic Year". All of the financial information gathered will be for the period of May 2019 - April 2020. The Pre-study Term is May 1, 2019 - August 31, 2019 and the Study Term is September 1, 2019- April 30, 2020.

Award recipients are recognized annually at an Awards Reception hosted by Edwards School of Business, November of each year. Recipients, donors and guests are invited to attend the event where Edwards celebrates the student's achievements.

Co-Curricular Funding

The Co-Curricular Fund was established in 2014-15. It is meant to encourage students to pursue extra activities outside of the classroom to enhance the student experience while studying at the Edwards School of Business.

Purpose

The purpose of this fund is to provide financial assistance to undergraduate students to enable them to participate in:

  • academic-related conferences,
  • academic competitions,
  • professional development events, (Must be general skills development in nature and not linked to receipt of a professional designation i.e. Project Management Professional, Certificate Professional in Accounting)
  • student memberships to professional associations,
  • And other university activities or student organized academic events.

Funding Eligibility & Criteria

Students may not submit more than one request for funding per term. The activity must occur during the term students are applying for the funding i.e. apply in October for case competition that happens in November. Any requests received after the application deadline will not be considered. Group activities that receive funding from other sources are not eligible, i.e. JDC West. Amounts of funding vary depending on number of requests each term, always based on percentages and the amount of the request. However, the target percentage is 50-75% of amount requested up to a maximum of $800. Funding decisions are at the full discretion of the Co-Curricular Committee. In the event that students do not attend or take part in the approved co-curricular activity the funds cannot be re-distributed to other activities the student is participating in.

Application Requirements

The application period to apply for co-curricular funding is currently twice per year, in Term 1 (September 15 – October 15) and Term 2 (January 15 – February 15). The application is open for the entire month each term. Students are required to complete an application form which includes a description of the activity, why the activity is important and a budget breakdown.

Further details, including the application, are included in the weekly newsletter 'The Latest' which is sent out by the Edwards Student & Faculty Services Office prior and during each application period.
