"Many thanks to all who brought it to fruition, this is a testament to the entrepreneurial and creative spirits of graduate students," said Ehimai Ohiozebau, president of the GSA. "It reaffirms the GSA's position that graduate students play a role as key drivers of the economy of Saskatchewan. I hope the GSA Legacy Fund will provide the impetus for other initiatives to support the entrepreneurial and creative skills of graduate students."
Graduate students will be able to apply for the loans by entering either the i3 Idea Challenge or the Tech Venture Challenge. Everyone who enters will be given the option online to apply for the loan, with winners chosen by the judges of each respective business planning competition.
