February 16, 2022 – Electro-Federation Canada’s 2022 Scholarship Program has launched, with a record $160,000 available to university and college students across 63 scholarships.

The program is supported by numerous EFC members—companies that manufacture, distribute, market, and sell a range of electrical products.

Students who are pursuing a career in Electrical Engineering, Electrical Technologist/Technician, Industrial Distribution, Sales, Marketing, Finance, Human Resources, Supply Chain Operations, Logistics, Data Analytics Management, or Information Technology are encouraged to apply.

EFC says many new scholarships this year support diversity & inclusion, and encouraging participation from women and under-represented communities.


“This funding will assist the brightest students in the pursuit of their education,” said Electro-Federation Canada’s John Jefkins. “The program highlights the electrical industry as a great career destination [and] offers the opportunity for students to engage with EFC member companies […].”


The deadline to apply is May 31, 2022.

N.B. For all scholarships, preference will be given to those applicants with a connection to an EFC member company, and who are pursuing post-secondary education in a discipline that involves a career in the Electrical industry.
