New Scholarships for Women Pursuing Skilled Trades


Two prominent Brampton businesses have come together on an initiative that will provide 15 new $2,000 scholarships for women pursuing training in skilled trades. Unifor (Canada’s largest private sector union), Coca-Cola and Sheridan College recently announced the scholarships to support female students enrolled in the skilled trades or post-graduate manufacturing management programs.

The scholarships are timed to coincide with the re-location of Sheridan’s Skills Training Centre – for students enrolled in trades and apprenticeship programs – from Oakville to a new 130,000-square-foot building in Brampton.
