Support Sociology

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 Sociology.

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. 

Experiential Learning
Some of the most important lessons at university happen outside the classroom. Students learn and grow from unforgettable experiences. Whether it be working on cutting-edge research with their professors, to being in community getting hands-on training with local employers or doing community-based research, to living and studying in a different culture. Donors will give more students the chance to make experiential learning part of their education, no matter their financial means.

I am a current doctoral student in the Department of Sociology at the University of Saskatchewan where I study health inequity and advocate for the wellbeing of my community members. Primarily, I aim to support those who are often marginalized or sadly, ignored, by our current healthcare system.  

Your support for graduate students is so meaningful to me and numerous others. Thank you again for your generous support. I will do my best to represent you throughout my continued scholastic work.
