Being a student isn’t easy.

From classes to assignments, apprenticeships and exams, the stress can be high – and sometimes overwhelming – while you pursue a career in the electrical trade. On top of that, you have to worry about the cost of tuition.

A new scholarship is helping to relieve the financial burden so you can focus on what’s important: training and development.

A new electrical industry scholarship opportunity

Post-secondary school is a time for you to build the foundational skills and techniques that will support you throughout your career. It’s intended to help you – as future engineers, electricians, technicians, and technologists – learn how to create, problem solve, and make informed decisions.

3M believes you deserve to focus on the full experience.
That’s why 3M joined the Electro-Federation Canada (EFC) Scholarship Program.

Through the scholarship program, students who have completed at least one year at Humber College, Mohawk College, Conestoga College, University of Waterloo, or University of Toronto could be eligible to apply for the 3M Electrical Markets Division Scholarship – a $3,500 (CAD) scholarship towards your education.
