The CHHMA 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 the first two years 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 member company must remain a member in good standing in order for the student to qualify for the second year of the scholarship.
The student’s parent or guardian must be an active full-time employee with at least one years’ seniority with the CHHMA or 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, and attain a minimum average of 75% in the last year of high school or CEGEP.
Full details and application forms in both English & French can be found at the following link: https://www.chhma.ca/Public/Scholarship-Program.
In addition, you can download a poster in either language at the above link to help promote the program. Please print them off and post on your bulletin boards, in your lunch rooms or other high traffic areas to encourage your employees to take advantage of this member benefit!!
The CHHMA must receive applications from potential candidates no later than July 15th.
Since 2001, the CHHMA has awarded $190,000 towards scholarships and some 95 young people have benefited from the program.
