The Transportation Association of Canada (TAC) is a not-for-profit, national technical association that focusses on road and highway infrastructure and urban transportation. Their mission is to work together to share ideas, build knowledge, promote best practices, foster leadership, and encourage bold transportation solutions.
In 2024, the TAC Foundation is pleased to offer students the opportunity to apply for scholarships valuing between $2,500 and $6,000. The scholarships are intended to help support their post-secondary education in transportation-related studies.
The scholarships are competitive and based on the applicant’s specific transportation goals, academic record and transportation-related activities or job skills.
The TAC Foundation is also pleased to offer students the opportunity to apply for paid summer internship positions offering on-the-job training with transportation employers across Canada.
