September 27, 2016

Electro-Federation Canada (EFC) and its members have awarded Canadian university and college students $136,000 across 53 scholarships.

This initiative has supported students with over $1 million in funding since the program started in 1994.

The scholarship program is of prime importance for the electrical and electronics industries as it provides an opportunity for EFC members to join together under a proven program. Canadian university and college students are shown the electrical industry as a viable career choice in engineering, sales, marketing, finance, management, operations, information technology, logistics and human resources.

“Thanks to members from across the Canadian electrical and electronics industries, the EFC scholarships provide support for bright Canadian talents pursuing careers in the electrical industry,” says Joris Myny, Chair 2016 EFC Scholarship Program and Senior Vice President, Digital Factory and Process Industries & Drives Divisions, Siemens Canada. “The EFC scholarships also attract young talent to the electrical industry and in turn ensure that Canada is positioned as a leader in this field.”

“Each year EFC and its members are committed to this initiative and attracting students into the industry and their organizations. It also provides an opportunity for companies to meet with and educate the student on the benefits of a career in the electrical industry,” says John Jefkins, Vice President, Marketing & Communications, EFC.

The EFC Scholarship Program delivers a wide-range of offerings from manufacturers, distributors and associations.
