Discover the history

Regina City Council approved the City of Regina Scholarship Program in February, 1990.

In 1995, Saskatchewan Indian Federated College, now the First Nations University of Canada, was included into the Scholarship Program.

In 1997, the name of the scholarship was changed to the Henry Baker Scholarship Program to honour former Mayor Henry Baker.

In 2003, the Program expanded to include 2 more scholarships for students at SIAST, Wascana Campus.

The purpose of the Henry Baker Scholarship Program is to:

  • support superior students at the University of Regina, First Nations University and Saskatchewan Polytechnic;
  • support the aim of the City's economic development strategy to foster the potential of Regina's growing aboriginal community;
  • reflect the City of Regina's commitment to employment equity; and
  • recognize the important role the University of Regina, First Nations University of Canada and Saskatchewan Polytechnic play in our community.
