The SAITSA Student Grant Program is a new initiative, launched in September 2017, designed to provide students with the funding for personal and professional development opportunities.
To provide SAITSA members with the opportunity to participate in personal and professional development, which enhances skillsets, promotes change, cultivates leaders, and fosters new ideas.
To support SAITSA members in achieving their personal and professional goals and aspirations.
The program is open to all full-time and part-time SAITSA fee-paying members, including apprenticeship/trades programs. Courses required for graduation are not eligible for the program.
Students are eligible for a maximum of $500 per academic year. The reimbursement amount is dependent on the total reflected in submitted receipts and cannot exceed the original amount requested.
**Please note: The maximum number of applications have been accepted for the following events: NRP Certification, ACLS, PALS, National Geomatics Competition. Sorry for any inconvenience.
