The Electro-Federation Canada (EFC), a national, not-for-profit industry association that represents manufacturers and distributors of electrical, electronics, and telecom products, has announced the 2012 EFC Scholarship Foundation recipients. Each year, the foundation provides Canadian post-secondary students with funding support for their education. This year, 40 organizations in the electrical and consumer electronics sectors have provided financial support.

“This year, the foundation has provided a record-number of scholarships due to strong industry support from Electro-Federation Canada members,” said Jim Taggart, president and CEO of EFC. “Investing in Canadian university and college students ensures a bright future for our industry as we continue to offer a wide-range of exciting career opportunities.”

Supporting student for 17 years, the EFC Foundation Scholarship Program encourages Canadian youth to pursue a career in the electrical, electronics, and telecom industries. To date, EFC says it has invested over $600,000 in post-secondary technical training and education.

The scholarships are awarded to post-secondary students studying in an electrical or electronics field, including electrical apprenticeship, electrical engineering technology, electrical technician, electrical engineering, supply chain management or business administration.
