To emphasize the importance of education and our desire to have post-secondary graduates enter into the construction industry, the Mechanical Contractors Association of Hamilton Niagara established The MCAHN Scholarship Program.


To provide financial support for deserving children or wards of salaried personnel of member companies, for the purpose of attending recognized post-secondary institutions, and to encourage such individuals to attain a high level of academic achievement.


Degree and diploma programs offered by Canadian Universities and Ontario Community Colleges will be given primary consideration.


The scholarship fund will be awarded annually to sons, daughters or legal wards of persons who are full-time salaried employees of association members. Where companies have multiple offices or multiple areas of activity, the eligibility will be restricted to those servicing the MCA Hamilton Niagara area zone. The member firm must be in good standing for at least one year. The firms must sponsor the candidate(s) and the application(s) must be endorsed by the senior executive officer of the zone operations. Preference will be given to candidates who are a Canadian Citizen who have or will successfully complete the requirement to qualify for post-secondary education.


The Scholarship will be awarded to outstanding students enrolling in a course leading to a University Degree or Community College Diploma. The award will be based on academic achievement in the previous academic year. Having a minimum "B" average is a prerequisite. In addition to academic achievement, preference will be given to those showing an interest in the construction industry. Extra-curricular activity, work experience, employment reference, and supporting material, written submission and course of study will be an added aspect of selection.
