St. Peter's College and Abbey were founded with a spirit of giving and providing for future generations. Many alumni have stories where, when facing financially difficult circumstances, St. Peter's College or Abbey provided the means to continue their education. As St. Peter's College ramps up for a new academic year, this spirit continues to be carried on due to the generosity of alumni and others.
Thanks to our many generous donors, St. Peter's College was able to award over $107,000 in student scholarships, awards, and bursaries for the 2021 – 2022 academic year, an impressive increase from the $90,000 total from 2020 – 2021. Scholarship money helps students pay for tuition, textbooks, and living costs while attending St. Peter's College in the first or second year of their university education. This year also saw the most applicants in St. Peter's College history from returning, exiting, and incoming students.
When St. Peter's College scholarships are combined with University of Saskatchewan scholarships, it creates a financial situation for students where they can focus more on their studies and less on bills and work. It's no wonder why St. Peter's College is known for its academic success.
Student Awards Booklet 2021
Funds are donated by alumni and other donors to be awarded to previous students who have attended the College during the past academic year to help with the financial burdens of transitioning to the main campus. These awards provide exiting and returning students an opportunity to reflect on their St. Peter's experience and the memories they had made at the College.
Students usually are awarded their scholarships during an award ceremony to which College staff, faculty, donors, and students are invited to attend. Unfortunately, the traditional award ceremony had to be canceled in the 2020 and 2021 years due to COVID-19. Recipients were provided with an opportunity to receive their awards safely.
St. Peter's College and the scholarship, bursary, and award recipients would like to thank our unique donors, without whom we would not be able to reward so many deserving young adults.
