Cameco’s Northern Saskatchewan Scholarship Now Open
Energizing the future through education
La Ronge's Ashley Stratton used the Cameco Northern Saskatchewan Scholarship money toward her first year of Nursing at the University of Saskatchewan last year, and she's applying again this year.
Last year Cameco awarded scholarships to fifteen young northerners who are pursuing a wide variety of post-secondary educational programs.
La Ronge's Ashley Stratton used her scholarship toward her first year of nursing at the University of Saskatchewan, and she's applying again this year. “The Cameco scholarship lightened the financial burden university placed on me, allowing me to focus on the most important aspect of school – learning.”
Her long term goal is to work for Stars or another air ambulance as a flight nurse, incorporating her love for aviation and desire to help others.
The 2019 scholarship program is now open for applications. Northern Saskatchewan students pursuing post-secondary education, who meet program criteria, are eligible for up to $5,000 each year. This includes successful applicants from last year.
