Become a Sponsor

Thank you for your interest in supporting our programs and enhancing the student experience in our department. If the following sponsorship opportunities do not meet your needs, we would be happy to work with you to develop a sponsorship that matches your goals.

The Student Experience

Event sponsorships have a direct and meaningful impact on the student experience by allowing us to elevate our event offerings. These offerings create opportunities for skill development, inspiration, and career exploration, and foster a sense of community within our department and the tech industry.

We have created a sponsorship guide for the 2023-2024 academic year outlining sponsorship opportunities in our department. Note that the opportunities provided here will be reserved on a first-come, first-served basis.

2023-2024 Computer Science Sponsorship Guide

Additional ways to support our students and enhance their university experiences include:

  • Share your experiences by speaking in classrooms, student conferences, or seminars.
  • Providing mentorship through the USask Connects program
  • Invite students to visit your company headquarters. This may be in the form of an open house, a presentation on professional development, or a demo of your current projects. Our department is happy to work with you to promote such events to students. 

We are always open to new avenues to support our student programs and activities. If you have an idea, don’t hesitate to contact us - we’d love to hear from you.

Contact our Outreach Coordinator to start a conversation about how you could get involved in sponsoring our students and programs.

Support Success

Donors play a big part in broadening the department’s margin of excellence and attracting high caliber students to our programs. Awards and scholarships positively affect a student's academic experience and encourage further engagement at the academic and professional levels.

Fund for Excellence

The Computer Science Fund for Excellence was established in 1988 to advance new initiatives that enhance the excellence of the department's programs in a manner that complements, rather than replaces, traditional sources of University funding. Contributing to this fund is one way to support the department.

Start Your Own Scholarship or Award

Donor-funded scholarships and bursaries are one way for you to express your passion for academic enlightenment, values in the community, or pay tribute to a beloved family member or colleague. While scholarships recognize academic excellence, bursaries focus on addressing the financial needs of our students. The Department of Computer Science follows the University of Saskatchewan regulations and procedures for donations. More information about creating your own award or making a donation to USask can be found here. Any questions you may have can be directed to the College of Arts and Science Advancement Team.
