Construction Education Council expands scholarship program

WINNIPEG — The Construction Education Council (CEC) scholarship program has been expanded to offer more than $20,000 in scholarship money and involve seven additional associate member firms.

The program emphasizes the importance of education and the desire to have post-secondary graduates as well as current undergraduates enter into the mechanical contracting industry, states the Mechanical Contractors Association of Manitoba website.

For 12 years, Federated Insurance offered a Scholarship Program through CEC. This year, the Associates Council have also collectively put together a scholarship to bring the grand total to eight.

Every scholarship is slightly unique and may have a different set of criteria.

  • Women in a mechanical construction related program – TACO, $2000;
  • Students enrolled in skilled “mechanical” trades programs – FRANKE KINDRED, $1,500 and Wolseley Canada, $2,000;
  • Student Chapter Member or son or daughter of a member company who is studying in the mechanical or related construction field – Federated Insurance, $1,000, Masco Canada/Delta Faucet, $1,500, MCA Canada Associates Council, $2,500 and UPONOR, Dan Kirkpatrick Scholarship $2,500 (Five scholarships of $500 each);
  • Student Chapter Member or son or daughter of a member company who is studying in the mechanical or a related construction field, business management or computer science – Bradford White Canada, $1,500; and
  • Students attending recognized post-secondary institutions with a goal of entering the mechanical contracting trade upon graduation, whether on the tools or in the office – OS&B R.J.(Bob) Evans Memorial Scholarship – two $2,500 (college program) or four $2,500 (university program)
