Cameco, one of the largest uranium producers, will offer northern Saskatchewan students funding opportunities for post-secondary education beginning this year. Cameco’s Northern Saskatchewan Scholarship is a dedicated program for residents of Saskatchewan’s north who are seeking funding for post-secondary education.
“Despite the tough economic times today, Cameco remains committed to our northern partners,” said 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.”
Cameco’s Northern Saskatchewan 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 been allocated in 2018. Deadline for applications is July 15 and students can apply online at www.cameconorth.com/scholarship.
Additional scholarship opportunities are 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. In total, this fall, more than $200,000 will be available to students.
