Recipients of our Bursaries

Polytechnic – Saskatoon CampusJessica Lukan, Father: Alfred Lukan from Debden Council 3456
It is with extreme gratefulness that I accept this award from the Saskatchewan Knights of Columbus. This award helps me financially. It takes away some of the financial stress of buying textbooks, paying for parking and so much more which in turn allows me to focus more on my studies. Completing this degree is very important to me. With a degree in nursing I hope to become a wound care nurse. I am very honored and humbled to have been
chosen for this award.
Thank you,
Jessica Lukan

Dear Saskatchewan Knights of Columbus,
As a recipient of the 2022 Saskatchewan Knights of Columbus Charitable Foundation Award, I wanted to thank you for funding this scholarship.
I am a first-year Psychiatric Nursing Student at Saskatchewan Polytechnic and am anticipated to graduate in December 2024. My goal is to become a Psychiatric Nurse in Dementia Care and Geriatrics. I am planning on obtaining a position as a caregiver to help fund my education. Thanks to this scholarship, I can reduce my work schedule and focus more on my studies.
My grandfather, Ronald Pigott, was a Knights of Columbus in Moose Jaw and I hope he would be extremely proud of the achievements I have accomplished and proud regarding my going back to school for nursing.
Thank you again for your investment at Saskatchewan Polytechnic and students like me. I am very grateful for this opportunity and your support for students in your community.

Thank you kindly for the bursary! With my father being a member of the Knights of Columbus, having him show me what giving looks like, to having The Knight of Columbus give me this bursary shows that things really do come full circle. I’ve had the opportunity to help the KOC out a few times and they really are a stand-up group of people! Thank you for helping me further my career!
