Vaughn Crofford Memorial Scholarship Program

July 15, 2024

The CHPTA recognizes the importance of education, and therefore encourages children of employees of our association member companies to attend university or college. To help offset the cost of a post-secondary education, the CHPTA is pleased to offer the Vaughn Crofford Memorial Scholarship Program.

Successful candidates receive $1,000 (CDN) for the first year of study leading to a degree from an accredited community college or university.

How to Apply

Applicants must be high school seniors preparing to enter an accredited community college or university in the fall term, and attain a minimum average of 75% in the last year of high school.

The student’s parent or guardian must be an active full-time employee with at least one years seniority with the CHPTA or member company as of July 15th, in the year of application.

Complete the application form.

Winner selection process:

  • All qualifying applications that meet the criteria will be placed in a ballot draw.
  • Applicants with GPA averages of 90%+ will receive three ballots; applicants with averages of 85-89 will receive two ballots; all other qualifying averages will receive one ballot.

The decision of the Selection Committee and the CHPTA is final and not open to appeals.

The CHPTA reserves the right to withdraw a scholarship should the student’s parent(s) or guardian(s) voluntarily leave the employment of the CHPTA or member company, or if employment is terminated for just cause prior to the start of the school year, or if the company terminates its membership in the Association.
