New Partnership with Saskatchewan Heavy Construction AssociationMay 19, 2021
Students enrolled in the Heavy Equipment Operator (HEO) program through Southeast College will now have an additional funding opportunity available to them. Southeast College has partnered with the Saskatchewan Heavy Construction Association (SHCA) to provide scholarships directed at students enrolled in the HEO program.
The Southeast College is currently offering three intake cohorts of the Heavy Equipment Operator program with four cohorts planned in each of 2022 and 2023. Each cohort is twelve weeks in length with the first 6 weeks spent in classroom and the last 6 weeks spent in a field experience environment. Students will be eligible to apply for the scholarship during the first six weeks of their program, and the successful recipient will receive their scholarship during the ninth week of their program.
The scholarship is valued at $2,000 and will be presented to one student in each intake cohort. Awarding of the scholarship will be based on factors including academic achievement and student financial need.
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.
Applications are still being accepted for 2021 programs with cohorts starting on June 7th and July 19th. Interested students can apply online at Southeastcollege.org.
Southeast College is proud to be the Trainer of Choice in Southeast Saskatchewan. The College offers innovative and flexible programming that encourages students to learn where they live.
