TransCanada Energy Ltd. (TransCanada) has established a Power Engineering Scholarship Program in association with the development of the Napanee Generating Station, TransCanada’s Ontario operating power facilities, Cambrian College in Sudbury, Ontario and the Cambrian College Foundation (the “TransCanada Power Engineering Scholarship Program”).

The TransCanada Power Engineering Scholarship Program will fund the costs of tuition, books and residence (or if not in residence provide a fixed allowance to assist with the cost of living) for 3 eligible high school graduate students from the County of Lennox & Addington, Town of Greater Napanee and the surrounding First Nations Communities. Eligible candidates must receive an offer of admission into the Power Engineering Techniques (PETQ) program at Cambrian College starting in the fall of 2015 to be eligible. The PETQ prepares the candidate for examinations leading to the Technical Standards Safety Authority (TSSA) 4th Class Operating Engineering Certificate of Qualification. The successful graduates of the PETQ program will be eligible for continued support for the costs of tuition, books and residence (or if not in residence provide a fixed allowance to assist with the cost of living) if the candidate receives offers of admission into the Power Engineering Technician (PWTN) program at Cambrian College. Upon graduation from this program, candidates are prepared to write the examinations leading to the Technical Standards Safety Authority (TSSA) 3rd Class Operating Engineering Certificate of Qualification. Total value of the scholarship over  two years is approximately $23,000.00 per student.

In addition to the funding support, and depending on position availability, TransCanada will provide opportunities for students enrolled in the TransCanada Power Engineering Scholarship Program to get their required practical experience for the 4th and 3rd Class Operating Engineering Certificates of Qualification at one of TransCanada’s existing power generation facilities in Ontario. This is estimated as 3 months of practical experience for the 4th Class and 1 month of experience for the 3rd Class. Students will
be paid by TransCanada during their employment at these facilities.
