Stantec STEM Scholarship

Stantec STEM Scholarship

In 2019, Stantec celebrated their 65th Anniversary. To mark the occasion, they have decided to partner with 65 organizations to provide scholarships in support of higher education. The resounding success extended the program into 2020.  This year, Stantec reached out to the Calgary Military Family Resource Centre to create a scholarship in support of military families, members, and veterans.  
 
Through this generous donation by the Stantec Community Engagement Program, the Calgary MFRC will select and provide a one-time $1000 award to a deserving student from a CAF Family. 
 
This partnership moves us closer to achieving our mission of empowering Military families. Scholarships allow deserving students to attain their educational goals, meet their professional objectives and succeed to their fullest ability.
