More information about this scholarship
The funds were established from an organization with a core purpose to determine values for properties, which is the foundation for our property tax system in Ontario. This scholarship is to provide financial assistance to students who are pursuing an apprenticeship in the trades, more particularly the building trades, such as HVAC, carpenter, plumber or other property building trade.
Interested students should write a brief statement about why they are pursuing the building trades as an area of study, how the funds would assist them in pursuing this career, and how they intend to give back to the community.
