Tuition Assistance

Outside of Leadership Saskatoon, the Muttart Foundation provides bursaries for leadership training through its Leadership Bursary Program. Please visit: http://www.muttart.org. If you apply for a bursary through the Muttart Foundation please indicate this on your Leadership Saskatoon application.
