The USFA Scholarship Program is open to students who are immediate family members of USFA members. Immediate family includes spouse/partner, sons, daughters or children whom USFA members have served as legal guardians.
The application form for the 2016-2017 USFA Scholarship Fund Program is now available exclusively online at: paws.usask.ca/go/awards. Students can apply online through their PAWS account as follows:
1) Log into the Scholarships and Bursaries channel in PAWS (paws.usask.ca/go/awards)
2) Click on the green “Apply for awards” button
3) Click on the “Select Application Form” scroll-down menu
4) Select the “2016-2017 USFA Tuition Scholarship Fund Application”; click “Apply”
Once the student has completed the application, an automated email will be sent to the Faculty member’s University of Saskatchewan email address. On receipt of that email, the Faculty member will need to log into PAWS as instructed by the email to confirm the Faculty member/ student relationship. Both the student and the faculty member will get a confirmation email that the application has been made. If you do not get the confirmation email please contact student awards immediately.
Each year $250,000 is contributed to the USFA Scholarship Fund. The $250,000 is divided by the number of credit units eligible applicants have successfully completed for credit courses taken in the 2016-2017 academic year (May 1, 2016-April 30, 2017). Recipients will be emailed in late July 2017 with the results of their application.
Scholarship money will be applied directly to the recipient’s student account. Any balance of account, after outstanding tuition and fees are paid, will be refunded by cheque and will be mailed to the student’s address listed on PAWS.
