All My Relations Award

Established by JSGS Alumna, Nicole Callihoo, the All My Relations Award aims to assist two students — one each from the University of Regina and University of Saskatchewan campuses — annually who are pursuing a graduate degree in the Johnson Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy. Each award is valued at $1,000. 

Garry H. Beatty Scholarship

The Garry H. Beatty Scholarship was established through a donation provided by friends and colleagues in memory of Garry H. Beatty, recognizing his long career in Saskatchewan Finance and the Crown sector. This scholarship assists students who are pursuing an MPA degree in the Johnson Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy. One award of $1,300 will be presented annually to a JSGS student from either of the University of Regina or the University of Saskatchewan campus. 

Robert C Douglas and Joanne R. Sutherland Scholarship

The Robert C. Douglas and Joanne R. Sutherland Scholarship was established through a donation by Mr. Douglas and Ms. Sutherland as a thank you to Saskatchewan for their years working in the public service. This scholarship assists students who are pursuing a Master's degree in Public Policy or Public Administration at the Johnson Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy. One award will be presented annually to a deserving JSGS student from either the University of Saskatchewan or the University of Regina campus. 

Wayne Wouters Scholarship

The Wayne Wouters Scholarship was established through donations provided by friends of Wayne Wouters to provide recognition for his long-standing public career and to support JSGS students enrolled in the MPA and MPP programs. One award, valued at $1,600, will be presented annually to a deserving JSGS student from either the University of Saskatchewan or the University of Regina campus. 

Experiential Learning for Students

JSGS offers a number of experiential learning opportunities for our students, ranging from networking opportunities to the annual case competition and poster competition, to our Executive Internship program. We strive to provide its students with successful opportunities outside of the classroom.

Monetary support would strengthen and expand the Executive Internship Program with key partners who may be unable to fund an intern on their own budget, and provide students with access to international internship opportunities. 

Experiential learning also increases the involvement of experienced practitioners in the instructional setting and enriches the educational experience for the students.

$25,000/executive internship or $5,000 for each of the other experiential learning opportunities

Community Engagement/Public Events

JSGS provides an important link between academia, government and the general public.

Through our community outreach, we offer a number of high quality, timely public lectures, panels, and policy briefs, which seek to provide knowledge impact. Creating an annual faculty lecture series that features the array of research underway at JSGS would further disseminate JSGS research. Increasing knowledge mobilization could establish a forum to share research findings with the provincial government policymakers.

Engaging further with the broader community improves the impact of JSGS public events and expands the School’s presence in the community. 

$10,000 - $1,000,000

Research Chairs

JSGS focuses on three research clusters:

JSGS strives to position the School as a national leader in policy analysis and advice that is theoretically grounded, methodologically rigorous and empirically based.  Monetary support in research would leverage existing capacity to develop proposals for large scale research projects, networks and other initiatives.  This funding will also create new opportunities for postdoctoral fellows and professional research associates; therefore, increasing involvement of students and increasing student recruitment. 

$200,000/year for 5 years
