University / College Bursaries
Bursaries are offered annually to a son or daughter (or grandchild) of an employee of Emcon Services Inc. in our current locations. The bursaries will be awarded to graduates who are going on to further education at a post-secondary institute – one in the area of academics/engineering and one in industry-related trades (heavy duty mechanics, welding, bridge worker, industrial warehousing etc.) The bursaries must be used during the school year immediately following graduation. Proof of enrolment is required in order to access the payment.
The criteria for these bursaries will be focused on need, effort, interest and responsibility, rather than strict academics (C+ average or better preferred).
In the event that no son, daughter or grandchild of an Emcon Services Inc. employee is graduating from any of the area high schools, we will ask the schools to recommend candidates from their graduating class who have achieved a C+ average, and who have exhibited extra effort and interest, and who have a financial need.
1. Students complete an application form supplied by the school.
2. Applicants write a letter of application for the bursary, to the school principal,
stating their education plans, goals and reason for seeking this bursary.
3. The application and letter are submitted to the counsellor in charge of bursaries.
Each school will choose their best candidate based on:
2. Qualification criteria.
3. Application in accordance with the procedure.
Recommendations for recipients are forwarded to the appropriate office of Emcon Services Inc.
