Empowering students across North America

Close to 300 post-secondary students from across the U.S. and Canada received a TransCanada Community Scholarship in 2017.

Some of our past recipients, like Katie B., shared how this scholarship helped them pursue their educational goals while also enhancing their communities.

In 2018, we are excited to offer more than $600,000 in community scholarships.

Josh O., British Columbia

Trades Scholarship Recipient

With his father’s influence, Josh knew early on that he wanted to pursue an education in the trades. He is already a journeyman electrician and with a 2017 TransCanada Trades Scholarship he is working towards a secondary certification in instrumentation. Josh explains: “School is expensive, so I’m thankful for TransCanada’s support.” Watch the video to learn more about Josh’s interest in the trades.
