COVID-19 Emergency Student Funding

Parkland College understands that the COVID-19 pandemic has affected everyone, and many students are struggling to make ends meet. That’s why we have introduced this emergency funding program.

Support is available for students who are:
– registered in a Parkland College program of at least 5 weeks in length;
– a strong candidate to be successful in their program; and
– able to demonstrate financial need.

The financial crisis must be beyond the student’s control (e.g. job loss caused by COVID-19, delays in student loan processing, sudden changes to housing situation, etc.). Students must have attempted to secure support from other avenues (e.g. food bank, shelter, band). Students are required to speak to a counsellor or coordinator about their financial situation before the application is approved and processed.

Each applicant is eligible for up to $500 in emergency funding. We recognize that each situation is different, so the College’s president may approve requests above $500. However, no extraneous bills (e.g. car payments, cable TV, etc.) shall be considered. Generally, this money should only go towards housing, food, or internet connection to allow participation in classes.

To apply for the COVID-19 Emergency Bursary, complete this online form. If your application meets our selection criteria, you’ll receive a confirmation email with more details.

Dollars for Scholars Golf Classic cancelled for 2020

Parkland College has made the difficult decision to cancel the Dollars for Scholars Golf Classic for 2020, due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The College’s 15th annual scholarship fundraising event had been scheduled for June 19 at Deer Park Golf Course in Yorkton.

The Re-Open Saskatchewan Plan announced last week that golf courses will be one of the first businesses allowed to resume operations in May. However, the Plan’s golf course guidelines note that tournaments are prohibited at this time. When combined with continuing restrictions on the size of public gatherings, it is clear that hosting the Dollars for Scholars Golf Classic is not possible this year.

In the meantime, Parkland College will look at other opportunities for golfers, sponsors, and the community to support local students. The College will also begin planning for the 2021 Dollars for Scholars Golf Classic.

Since its inception in 2006, the Dollars for Scholars Golf Classic has raised more than $258,000 for scholarships at Parkland College.

Parkland College sends supplies to aid COVID-19 fight

Across Saskatchewan, front-line health care workers are giving their all to battle the COVID-19 pandemic. Parkland College is giving what it can, in the form of much needed supplies.

The College recently packed up boxes and bags of materials to send to the Saskatchewan Health Authority. The contribution included 190 N95 masks, more than 7,000 nitrile gloves, and hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes, goggles, respirators, reagents, and gowns.

Many of these materials were sourced from the College’s health care programs, including Nursing, Continuing Care Assistant, and Primary Care Paramedic. But staff also collected items from the facilities department, and the chemistry/biology lab and Power Engineering lab at the Trades & Technology Centre in Yorkton.
