The CHPTA recognizes the importance of education and therefore encourages children of our member companies to attend university or college. To help offset the cost of a post-secondary education, the Association is pleased to offer a Scholarship Program. Successful candidates receive $1,000 per year (CDN) for their first year of study leading to a degree from an accredited community college or university.
The program is offered to Canadian companies or divisions of companies based in Canada.
- The student’s parent or guardian must be an active full-time employee with at least one years’ seniority with the CHPTA, or CHPTA member company, as of July 15th, in the year of application.
- Applicants must be high school seniors, or in their last year of CEGEP in Quebec, preparing to enter an accredited community college or university in the fall term.
- Applicants must attain a minimum average of 75% in the last year of high school or CEGEP.
The deadline for the CHPTA to receive applications from potential candidates is July 15th.
