The Electro Federation of Canada (EFC) Scholarship Program is making an impact in our electrical industry by creating value for Canadian students and EFC membership companies. Since 1995, EFC members have ‘joined hands’ to create value and opportunity for Canadian students by taking their stories to universities, colleges, and vocational education centers across Canada. Utilizing the Canadian Scholarship student database, the program provides viable career choice for students and builds awareness of the great opportunities our industry offers. Our expanded program offers opportunity to engage at the grassroots classroom level with our partner, Riipen, that provides access to 3 in-class projects and branding on their school website.
The ongoing impact of COVID-19 has resulted in severe restrictions to both colleges and universities that has interrupted the practices for students to receive standard educational learning and teachings while in a classroom setting. COVID-19 has not only affected our universities and colleges but very importantly the educational opportunities of students who now struggle with tuition fees for their programs due to the loss of their part time jobs that funded their education. The future of our students is very important the EFC membership.
The EFC Scholarship program provides financial support to Canadian students during these unprecedented times by increasing awareness of career opportunities in Engineering, Sales, Marketing, Finance, Management, Operations, Information Technology and Human Resources. Students are encouraged to explore all scholarship opportunities and apply at https://scholarship.electrofed.com/.
With diversity and inclusion in the education system being so important in today’s world, creating greater multicultural awareness and inclusion helps students with different backgrounds and needs succeed. It encourages acceptance and helps prepare students to thrive in an exponentially diverse world. It improves cognitive skills and critical thinking, promotes creativity, and helps to create a more culturally responsive learning environment. Given such unprecedented times, we are continuing to follow the safety guidelines for our educators and students, whilst continuing to properly and effectively deliver educational practices to ensure the excellence and success our of students.
On behalf the EFC Scholarship Committee, I am pleased to announce in 2021 we will be offering over $130,000 in funding. The participating companies listed are leading manufacturers, distributors, agency-representatives, and associations within the industry, offering a vast array of dynamic career opportunities at all levels of their organizations. Our EFC members are engaging with the scholarship recipients by meeting with them and educating them on both their company and the electrical industry. In some cases, scholarship recipients are offered employment.
Thank you to all the EFC Scholarship Committee members who dedicated their time and effort to achieve the program goals and thank you to all participating members who have made this initiative possible for over 25 years now.
