EFC Sholarship program

This award is part of the Electro-Federation Canada (EFC) 2016 ScholarshiPprogram. Since its inception in 1994, the EFC Scholarship Pprogram has supported students with over $1 million in funding, and during this year alone, it has awarded over $138,000 through the awarding of 53 scholarships.

“More than just funding students, this program is an opportunity to promote our industry in every Canadian university and college, and showcase the electrical industry as a viable career choice. Because with an aging workforce and succession planning a priority combined with the rapid development of new technologies, it is critical to attract the best and brightest students.”
