Saskatchewan Polytechnic Bursary Program

This bursary program is for SARC Member employees interested in taking courses in the Disability Support Worker Certificate Program through Saskatchewan Polytechnic. 


Saskatchewan Polytechnic Bursary Program

This bursary program is intended for SARC Member employees interested in continuing their education and taking courses in the Disability Support Worker Certificate Program, to a maximum of two (2) bursaries per person, per fiscal year. 

SARC has bursaries available to cover tuition costs for individual courses in the Disability Support Worker Certificate Program through Saskatchewan Polytechnic.  This bursary covers tuition only. All other costs (such as books, print materials, and application fees) are the learner’s responsibility. 

Please note that if you are approved for a bursary, you are required to pay for the course upfront. Once registered in the course, send us proof of enrollment as well as a copy of the paid invoice to, and we will reimburse the SARC Member. 

SARC is only able to reimburse SARC Member organizations, not individual learners. Please discuss reimbursement with your organization.
