Cadiente awarded fellowship to pursue PSM
Isaac Cadiente has been awarded a $25,000 fellowship from the National Science Foundation to attend the University of Idaho to pursue a graduate degree in the Professional Science Master’s Program (PSM) in natural resource and science management. The PSM is an innovative interdisciplinary degree that prepares graduates for science careers in business, government, or nonprofit sectors, and focuses on sustainability science as it applies to natural resources and the environment. The degree combines rigorous study in science and allied mathematics with training in management and communication skills necessary for a successful professional career. Graduates of the program will have advanced scientific skills and will be able to work effectively with business and industry. Throughout his undergraduate career, he was a scholarship recipient from Goldbelt and Sealaska heritage institutes, Tlingit and Haida higher education and alumni scholarships, and the Alaska Native Brotherhood Arthur Demmert Sr. Scholarship. He also interned for three summers in Sealaska’s Natural Resources Department. Cadiente, who graduated from Juneau-Douglas High School in 2003 and Fort Lewis College in 2010, is the son of Carlos and Paula Cadiente and the grandson of Irene and the late Andres Cadiente.
