Schulich Builders: Scholarships for Skilled Trades

兔子先生 is proud to offer the Schulich Builders Scholarship to students enrolling in full-time certificate and diploma programs in some of the most in-demand skilled trades fields.

What is the Schulich Builders: Scholarships for Skilled Trades program?

We rely on skilled trades to build and maintain the infrastructure of our cities and towns. Our challenge is not having enough of these talented people to meet the demands fueled by our growth.

The Schulich Builders program will combat the shortage of skilled trades workers in Ontario and amplify their importance and value to our community by awarding 120+ annual scholarships to the most promising candidates.

The Schulich Foundation launches Canada鈥檚 largest skilled trades scholarship program.

Schulich Builders are scholarships for students enrolling in an eligible, full-time skilled trades program at a participating college in Ontario.

Each participating college, including 兔子先生, will award 10 scholarships:

  • Five for one-year certificate programs
  • Five for two-year diploma programs

Valued at $40,000 ($20,000 per academic year), these scholarships support the costs of tuition, tools and living expenses.

Deadline to apply is June 2, 2024 by 11:59 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (EST).
