ASHRAE Scholarships – Engineering Technology Scholarship

ASHRAE annually awards three (3) scholarships, valued at $3,000, to qualified undergraduate Engineering Technology students enrolled full-time in a post-secondary educational institution. Traditionally the recipients have been enrolled in a preparatory curriculum for the HVAC&R profession. Since Humber College hosts an ASHRAE Student Branch, the students within the various HVAC&R related programs are eligible to apply for this scholarship. Membership within the organization is a requirement as well.
