Scholarship Program

What is it?

Driving growth through parity. 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 the 2022/2023 academic year in each of the following categories; trades/technical studies, undergraduate studies and graduate studies.

The scholarship has not only helped me financially, but also introduced me to one of the leading industries of Saskatchewan. It's opening doors, which will help me connect to people in the mining industry and expand my knowledge.
