COPA Scholarship Fund

Are You Eligible For Our Scholarship?

2018 Scholarship Fund now accepting applications – Deadline: July 31, 2018

Four scholarships valued at $1,000 each to be awarded – one each in the east and west coasts and two in central Canada

The COPA Scholarship is available to students entering first or second year post-secondary studies who work for or have worked for, or whose parent/guardian/grandparent works for a COPA member company. The complete qualification criteria can be found in the Criteria and Guidelines.

Funds for this scholarship are provided through cash donations from generous COPA members and through fundraising efforts at the annual COPA Golf Tournament and Stars Gala. A silent auction is held each year at the Stars Gala in support of the Fund and $10 from the sale of each golf registration also goes directly to the Fund. Funds are also raised through our partnership with Fundscrip.

In addition, a prize raffle is held at the tournament each year to raise additional dollars. The funds raised each year determine both the number of scholarships that will be awarded in the following academic year and the value of each scholarship.

The COPA Board of Directors and staff thank all those who have contributed to the Fund either through direct cash donations or by participating in fundraising initiatives at the COPA events.
