Degree Program Scholarship: $2,500

The Saskatchewan School Boards Association is a non-profit organization dedicated to excellence in public education by providing leadership and services to Saskatchewan school boards.
The Saskatchewan School Boards Association, as a democratic and voluntary organization, ensures advocacy, leadership and support for member boards of education by speaking as the voice of public education, offering opportunities for trustee development and providing information and services.
School boards are elected to govern Kindergarten to Grade 12 education in their school divisions and are essential members of local government. They ensure that the wishes of the community are reflected in the division’s schools and make decisions that shape the education of Saskatchewan’s children. The Saskatchewan School Boards Association supports boards in this very important work.
