Great Plains College made a recent announcement stating that over $100,000 of Entrance Scholarships were provided to over 100 students across Great Plains College campuses this fall. This included the Biggar campus, where Practical Nursing received funding. And in Kindersley, a pair of scholarships were handed out.

“Making the choice to continue your education is a big decision and we understand many students weigh the cost of the program heavily before deciding to take that step,” said Bryce Martin, donor services coordinator at Great Plains College in the release. “Receiving financial support through the form of a scholarship creates new possibilities, removes barriers and ultimately offers a pathway to education that may not have otherwise been possible. Handing out these scholarships and awards is a highlight of the academic year at Great Plains College.”

More than $18,000 was awarded to students at the Kindersley, Maple Creek, Martensville and Warman Campuses. 11 Adult Basic Education Persistence Awards will also be presented to students in Kindersley and other campuses at Great Plains College, including three Living Sky Casino Indigenous Adult Basic Education awards.
