2016 TAC Foundation Scholarship Recipients Announced

Tuesday, August 2, 2016

The Transportation Association of Canada (TAC) Foundation has announced that 31 scholarships are being awarded to undergraduates (university and college) and graduates in transportation-related disciplines totaling $132,500. 

Stéphanie Gamache (Université Laval) and Daniel Le (University of Calgary) are just two of the 31 students receiving the TAC Foundation scholarships this year.

The list of 2016 TAC Foundation scholarship recipients is now available online. This brings the running tally of the Foundation’s scholarship program to 431 scholarships valued at $1,774,000 since 2005. 

The Foundation‘s Scholarship Committee, chaired by Dr. Luis Amador of Concordia University, reviewed 118 applications in the three categories.  The 31 recipients, plus a number of other high-ranking applicants, will again benefit from the Employment Connections component of the program when, later this fall, information about their future employment interests and career ambitions will be shared with the TAC Foundation’s major donors.  Connecting transportation and roadways sector employers with the best and brightest young professionals entering the field brings increased relevance to participating in the TAC Foundation’s Scholarship Program for both donors and applicants.

Congratulations to this year’s recipients and the TAC Foundation’s committed donors for their tremendous support of the Foundation’s vision of Educating Tomorrow’s Transportation Leaders

Information on the 2017 Scholarship Program will be posted by the end of November 2016.
