M.H. (MIKE) NICOLS SCHOLARSHIP PLAN
The objective of this program is to encourage and assist students through the medium of a financial award, to further their education at the post-secondary level, thereby improving their potential for personal fulfilment, for a meaningful contribution to society and hopefully to the Insulation Industry. A scholarship is an award made in recognition of academic achievement, general proficiency and financial need.
This Scholarship is available to qualifying students who are proceeding directly to a full-time post secondary educational program to obtain a degree, certificate or diploma, at an accredited Canadian University or Canadian Community College. Each student applying must be an Eligible Dependent of a Qualifying Member. All applications will be referred to an independent Awards Officer who will make a recommendation, as to the recipient of the Schoalrship, to the Board of Trustees of the Benefit Fund. The selection will be based on the written applications and supporting data submitted by and on behalf of the applicants.
Determining factors will be considered in this order of precedence.
Need for financial assistance, recognizing family circumstances, personal work effort, other scholarships, bursaries, awards, etc (including OSAP);
Academic history and background with emphasis on proficiency in the year of application;
Volunteer work and contribution to the community.
The Scholarship program can be terminated by the Trustees at any time; however, outstanding commitments for the current year will be met.
