Two new scholarships available for post-secondary students

·2 min read

College or university undergraduates and high school seniors will have two new scholarship opportunities available to them this year.

The Right of Way (ROW) management committee, within the Ontario Public Works Association, is offering four scholarships of $1,000 each, within the field of public works.

The committees’ mandate is to develop relationships, knowledge and best practices that will educate users and stakeholders on the efficient use and management of the public right-of-way. Public works includes a broad field of disciplines, including transportation, utilities, solid waste, emergency management, water resources, snow and ice management, fleet management, parks and recreation and storm water management. ROW says public works careers can include everything from engineers to fiscal managers, to heavy equipment operators to water and wastewater plant operators, to scientists.

The deadline for applicants interested in applying is June 25, 2021. Students will be notified in September if they have been accepted. Applications are available at https://rowmanagement.ca/bursary-program-and-application/.

Bruce Power, in partnership with the new Ontario Energy Network, has introduced the Bruce Power Nuclear Studies Scholarship, valued at $3,500 and to be used for future studies.

The scholarship is available to a post-secondary student in Ontario who has successfully completed at least one year of study in a science, engineering, technology, IT or business discipline and who has demonstrated a commitment to community service.

“Bruce Power is proud to team up with the Ontario Energy Network to identify and assist worthy post-secondary students in Ontario,” said Pat Dalzell, Bruce Power’s head of corporate affairs. “Our hope is that the scholarship recipient will explore career opportunities in the Ontario nuclear energy sector once they complete their studies.”

The Ontario Energy Network has other scholarships available, including those specifically for women in energy, Indigenous people in energy, and sustainable development. Information and an application for these scholarships is available at https://scholarship.electrofed.com/.
