Saskatoon Community Foundation Leadership Bursary

Leadership Saskatoon provides educational programming designed to promote leadership at the community level by exploring the realities, opportunities and challenges of our community.

Leadership Saskatoon was established by three founding members: Saskatoon Community Foundation, the Saskatoon and District Chamber of Commerce and the University of Saskatchewan. The McConnell Foundation, which also funds ArtsSmarts, provided start-up program funding and asked Saskatoon Community Foundation to act as a catalyst in the community. Saskatoon was one of only nine communities in Canada chosen to receive start-up funding. Saskatoon Community Foundation provides ongoing operational support through an annual grant to Leadership Saskatoon

Students enter into a dynamic, 9-month adult education curriculum including issue days and community projects, and involving mentorship, readings, self-assessments, site visits, interviews with current leaders, seminars with guest speakers and experts, group discussions and projects.

In 2003, Saskatoon Community Foundation established the Saskatoon Community Foundation Leadership Bursary (originally known as the Leadership Saskatoon Award), which provides an annual bursary to support tuition costs for an employee or volunteer with a registered charity to participate in this personal leadership development program.
