Students at regional colleges across Saskatchewan will receive up to $300,000 in scholarships over the next three years thanks to a major contribution from Viterra.

The grain company announced today that it’s contributing $150,000 to a new scholarship fund. Through the Saskatchewan Innovation and Opportunity Scholarship Program, colleges will be able to access up to $150,000 in matching funding.
