German Language Scholarships & Language Awards
Recognizing academic achievements with German language learners in Saskatchewan through language scholarships and awards.
Saskatchewan German Council Scholarship In Memory of Dr. Brian McKinstry.
In 1996, the SGC decided to recognize academic achievement and encourage students to pursue undergraduate studies in German at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon and the University of Regina. Therefore, two $500 annual scholarships were created, one at each of Saskatchewan’s universities. In 2007, the scholarship was renamed the Saskatchewan German Council Scholarship In Memory of Dr. Brian McKinstry.
Selections are made based on student academic achievement evaluated by the Award Committees of both institutions. Below is a list of the scholarship recipients since 1997.
Contact the University of Saskatchewan and the University of Regina directly for this scholarship.
