February 19, 2014 – Now entering its 19th year, Electro-Federation Canada (EFC) and its members—companies that manufacture, distribute and service electrical, electronics, and telecom products—will award $113,000 (a banner year!) across 56 scholarships.
“These scholarships both encourage and support Canadian students in their studies, and some members also provide exposure to our industry through internships,” said Joris Myny, chair 2014 EFC Scholarship Program and vice-president, industry, Siemens Canada Ltd. “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.”
Since its inception, the program has funded Canadian university and college students’ education with over $600,000, says EFC. These students discover the electrical industry is a viable career choice in Engineering, Sales, Marketing, Finance, Management, Operations, Information Technology and Human Resources.
