Scholarship Program

What is it?

Parity drives growth. In order to achieve this vision, the mission of WIM/WiN-SK is to connect and inspire a diversified workforce to be fully engaged in the Saskatchewan mining and nuclear industries. WIM/WiN-SK is offering three scholarships to promote greater participation of women in industry — in employment and leadership. The scholarships’ aims are to support a student embodying WIM/WiN-SK values and leading diversity in industry. Additionally, the scholarship winners will engage, build and grow the WIM/WiN-SK student network.

Our intention is to award three WIM/WiN-SK post-secondary scholarships of $1,000 in September 2019. One scholarship will be awarded to two university students – an undergraduate and a graduate student, and one to a student in a technical/trades related program.

Who is it for?

Students who meet the following criteria are eligible to apply:

  • Current member of WIM/WiN-SK.
  • Enrolled in a SK program related to fields of minerals, mining, nuclear, and/or radiation.
  • University: Full-time student in good standing, enrolled during the 2018/2019 term, and returning for the 2019 fall term. (Those entering a co-op or internship term are not eligible).
  • Trades/Technical: Full-time student in good standing registered in the 2019/2020 term. (Those finishing apprenticeship hours and returning to school are eligible but would need to provide proof of registration in order to receive payment).
