Elementary and High School Support
Athabasca education awards program:
We recognize students from Athabasca Basin communities for their academic achievement. Awards are given each year to students from Grade 7 to 12 to who are positive role models in school and in the community. A monetary award and gift is given to each recipient.
Science ambassador program:
Cameco sponsors University of Saskatchewan students to serve as science ambassadors in northern communities. Ambassadors bring their expertise in their field of study and promote post-secondary math and science careers while living for six weeks in the communities. They:
- provide teachers and students with hands-on science experiences related to the provincial science curriculum
- form partnerships with teachers, schools and communities
- act as role models for youth
- discuss potential science-based career options with the students.
