MSEM student awarded scholarship

Congratulations to Alyse Kambeitz for receiving the 2017 Women in Mining/Women in Nuclear Scholarship Post-secondary Scholarship - University Award


Alyse Kambeitz is a Master’s Candidate at the University of Saskatchewan in the Sustainable Environmental Management program. She previously obtained her Bachelor of Science with Great Distinction in June 2016 in Environmental Biology with a minor in Toxicology. She joined Cameco Corporation in the summer of 2016 as an Environmental Assistant, where she worked in the Compliance and Licensing department for three extended work terms. In that role, Alyse gained first-hand experience with environmental regulations, water quality trend reporting, community outreach and engagement as well as technical report writing. In addition to her discipline-specific training, Alyse continues to be involved in her community. Most recently she has volunteered with the Saskatchewan Mining Association, the Cameco Community Kitchen, the Cameco Cultural Reading Program, Touchdown for Dreams and the Cameco Cares Concert Series.

Alyse is a keen industry advocate and is striving to support diversity by actively engaging with students and young professionals. It is her belief that the first step to enhancing a diverse workforce is educating girls and young women that mining and nuclear career paths are ready for them. After Alyse obtains her Master’s degree she plans to return to the mining and nuclear sector to begin her sustainable environmental career path.
