CHPTA Scholarship Awards

GraduatesThe CHPTA Board of Directors is pleased to present this program to CHPTA members and their families. The CHPTA Scholarship Awards were established in 2001 and to date have awarded 107 scholarships, totalling $207,000 to the children of member company employees.

The Association recognizes the importance of education, and therefore encourages children of employees of our association member companies to attend university or college. To help offset the cost of a post-secondary education, the CHPTA is pleased to offer a Scholarship Program.

Successful candidates receive $1,000 (CDN) for the first year of study leading to a degree from an accredited community college or university.

The CHPTA must receive applications from potential candidates no later than July 15th of each year.

The program is offered to Canadian companies or divisions of companies based in Canada. 

The student’s parent or guardian must be an active full-time employee with at least one years seniority with the CHPTA or member company as of July 15th, in the year of application. Applicants must be high school seniors preparing to enter an accredited community college or university in the fall term, and attain a minimum average of 75% in the last year of high school.

The decision of the Selection Committee and the CHPTA is final and not open to appeals.

The CHPTA reserves the right to withdraw a scholarship should the student’s parent(s) or guardian(s) voluntarily leave the employment of the CHPTA or member company, or if employment is terminated for just cause prior to the start of the school year, or if the company terminates its membership in the Association.

Responsibilities and Obligations of the Winner

1. Each scholarship recipient must present the CHPTA with proof of acceptance by the community college or university before receiving the award.

2. The scholarship recipient is completely responsible for ensuring that the institution of choice meets the eligible criteria of the program.
