Applicants wishing to apply for the Marion Roberts Memorial Scholarship must have their applications submitted to AIA Canada by July 15th. The AIA/Marion Roberts Memorial Scholarship Awards were developed by the Automotive Industries Association of Canada to provide financial assistance and encouragement to enable students to further their education at the post secondary school level, thereby improving their potential for personal fulfillment and for making a meaningful contribution to society.
Scholarship award winners will receive $500 towards their post-secondary education. Awards are generated from funds donated by AIA divisions and the AIA national office in Ottawa. As a result, the total number of awards given will vary from year to year based on contribution levels.
Applicants must be the dependent child or spouse of a full-time employee in an active AIA member company in good standing. Confirmation of the parent’s/spouse’s employment must be provided by the member company and be sent along with the scholarship application.
Applicants must be enrolled in a full-time post secondary program leading to a degree, certificate or diploma at an accredited university, college, technical school or C.E.G.E.P. (Quebec). An overall score from the selection committee of 100 or more points must be achieved.
