Support Philosophy

The world needs leaders, innovators, thinkers and doers. The world needs problem solvers and global citizens that will confront the challenges and opportunities ahead.  Our alumni and donors play an integral role in ensuring our remarkable students are able to receive a world-class University of Saskatchewan education and become the next generation of leaders, professionals, and community members the world needs.

Department Priorities & Needs

We are striving to inspire students to succeed by investing in tomorrow’s thinkers and creators. We are seeking the critical philanthropic support needed to reach new levels of excellence in each of these areas for the Department of Philosophy.

Undergraduate Student Awards
We are seeking philanthropic support to increase the number of scholarships and bursaries available to support our undergraduate students.   

Together, we will create need-based bursaries to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to realize their full potential. Removing financial obstacles will provide access to a USask education for scores of students who could otherwise not afford to attend. 

New merit-based scholarships will reward academic achievement. Scholarships are our best opportunity to recruit the most promising students who will go on to change the world. Only you can make this happen. 

Graduate Research Fellowships

Graduate students are researchers and scholars with the skills to make major contributions to their fields. Graduate fellowships allow us to attract the most promising students whose research will change the world. Your support will expand our graduate research fellowships and help train the next generation of researchers, teachers, innovators and thought leaders.

john-barton.pngGiven I am in my last year of undergraduate study, those decisions that were once far away are finally coming into being. While this is exciting, it can also be unnerving, and having a clear understanding of what one is to do “next” is a difficult task.  

I have decided to continue my studies in philosophy by applying for a master’s degree. This scholarship not only acts as an incredible piece of financial aid, but also provides me with confidence in my abilities to continue pursuing philosophy – it gives me the courage to try.
