What is the Graduate Retention Program?
Saskatchewan is thriving and opportunities for graduates have never been brighter. The Graduate Retention Program rewards you for building your future in Saskatchewan by providing a rebate up to $20,000 of tuition fees paid by eligible graduates who live in Saskatchewan and who file a Saskatchewan income tax return.
The Graduate Retention Program became effective January 1, 2008.
The program has been expanded to include graduates from across the country and beyond who pursue their careers in Saskatchewan!
You are eligible if:
you graduated from an approved program after January 1, 2006;
you already live in Saskatchewan; or
you are moving to Saskatchewan.
An approved program must:
be equivalent to at least six months of full-time study at an eligible institution;
result in a certificate, diploma, or undergraduate degree; or,
provide journeypersons certification.
As an eligible graduate, you will be issued a GRP certificate by the Ministry of Advanced Education, Employment and Immigration to be submitted along with the amount of tuition paid when filing your Saskatchewan income tax.
