Students graduating university this month have their next chapter waiting for them at Assiniboine Community College. Bonus—they could receive this next level of training with tuition fully covered.

Assiniboine’s Elevate Award, announced today, will provide eligible students entering post-graduate programs at the college with full tuition. $100,000 in scholarships and bursaries will be available each year.

“Our post-graduate credentials are a great opportunity for new university graduates who want to hone their practical skills in a chosen field, or for those who’ve been working in their industry for any number of years and want to sharpen or expand their skill set,” said Mark Frison, President at Assiniboine.

“Many sectors throughout Manitoba report a labour shortage—skills and knowledge are in high demand. We hope this will open a door for post-secondary grads that they may not have previously contemplated, to enhance their employability, increasing knowledge in their existing field or diving into a new area of expertise.”

Assiniboine has more than 10 post-graduate credential programs across disciplines. Some programs, like Geographic Information Systems and Early Childhood Program Management have been offered for several years, while others like Public Safety, Agriculture, Accounting and Human Resource Management launched in the last few years.

Entrance into post-graduate programs requires a prior post-secondary credential.

There are both scholarships and bursaries available. Scholarships are based on merit and bursaries are based on financial need.
