Richard McKeagan Scholarship Series

To emphasize the importance of education and our desire to have post-secondary graduates, as well as current undergraduates, enter into the mechanical contracting industry, the Construction Education Council in partnership with MCA Canada Associate Members have established the Richard McKeagan Scholarship Series, recently renamed to recognize the work of the Association’s past-CEO.

This year we are very pleased to announce that the program has been expanded to offer more than $26,000 in scholarship money and involves 12 other associate member firms.  The Associates Council have also collectively put together a scholarship to bring the grand total to 13.   Every scholarship is slightly unique and may have a different set of criteria.  Click on each link below for program information.

Applications for the annual scholarships will be accepted between June 1st and July 31st this year and announcements will be made by the end of August.
