Across the province, SaskEnergy is known for its community investment and dedication to grass-roots initiatives. However, people may not know that in addition to sponsoring over 1,000 community events annually, SaskEnergy makes it easier for students to earn their post-secondary education. Each year, for more than a decade, SaskEnergy has provided significant funds toward scholarships, and 2013 will mark just over $1.5Million of investment over that time!
