Employers Support Saskatchewan Youth Apprenticeship Industry Scholarship Program
In 2013, the scholarship will provide 80, $1,000 scholarships to eligible high school graduates who complete the SYA program.

The Government of Saskatchewan also contributes to the program, which profiles the skilled trades as first choice careers for high school graduates.
“The Saskatchewan Youth Apprenticeship Program is an excellent example of the kind of public/private collaboration our province needs to create a workforce that will meet labour market needs and drive the provincial economy forward,” Economy Minister Bill Boyd said. “The sponsors honoured here today represent a significant commitment to building a long-term sustainable apprenticeship training program in Saskatchewan and we applaud them for their support.”
The SYA program encourages high school students to explore career opportunities in the skilled trades by providing awareness, research and hands-on experience.
Employers and industry associations interested in contributing to the SYA Industry Scholarship Program are encouraged to contact the SATCC at 1-877-363-0536.
