Energizing the future through education
The new Cameco Northern Saskatchewan Scholarship is dedicated program specifically for students in the northern Saskatchewan administration district. It's one of a collection of scholarship opportunities that Cameco and our partners offer to students.
“Despite the tough economic times today, Cameco remains committed to our northern partners,” says Tim Gitzel, president and CEO. “We want to support the future success of today’s northern youth and education is key to long-term success.”
With those words, Tim Gitzel announced a new Cameco Northern Saskatchewan Scholarship which is set to begin this year. The scholarship is a dedicated program, specifically for residents of Saskatchewan’s north who are seeking funding for post-secondary education.
Up to $5,000 is available to each applicant. With the opportunity to renew up to four terms, this means some students could have their entire degree or certificate funded through the program. A total of $50,000 has been allocated to this scholarship program in 2018.
Besides this opportunity, northern community-led scholarship programs, funded through Collaboration Agreements with our partners, enable even more educational options for northerners. As well, several other scholarships are sponsored directly by Cameco.
In total, this fall, more than $200,000 will be available to students pursuing post-secondary studies.
Details of each scholarship, including community-led programs, are available on www.cameconorth.com/scholarship.
