Cameco’s Northern Saskatchewan Scholarship – Application Process Opens
April 14, 2023
Energize your future, through education.
Cameco remains steadfast in its commitment to northern students. Our Northern Saskatchewan Scholarship is a dedicated program, specifically for residents of Saskatchewan’s north who are seeking funding for post-secondary education. The 2023 application process is now open and, as in past years, July 15 as the application deadline.
Last year, Keesha Martin used her scholarship towards her studies at the University of Saskatchewan. The financial assistance helped alleivate some stress that comes with relocating for post secondary education. “Being awarded the Northern Saskatchewan Scholarship helped myself and my family tremendously. I was able to focus on my classes without having to worry about finances.
“My advice is to take your time on the application. Start the application early and have all of the necessary documents required. It will be worth it in the end.”
The scholarship offers up to $5,000 per student each year. 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 again been allocated in 2023.
Since launching the program five years ago, Cameco has provided funding for 93 scholarships to northern Saskatchewan students. Their studies are diverse, ranging from nursing and education to mining, geology and management studies.

Additional scholarship opportunities are also available to northern students through local community scholarships, funded through Collaboration Agreements with Cameco’s community partners, as well as several other scholarships sponsored by Cameco.
