In recent years SCMAO has established three significant endowment funds for post-secondary students enrolled in supply chain-based studies at a college or university.
Awarded to Conestoga College, Ryerson University and Wilfrid Laurier University, these endowments have been created to assist and encourage students who seek supply chain education. These awards provide not only financial support to supply chain students, but also raises marketplace awareness of the profession.
In addition to the SCMAO Endowment agreements, SCMA National also provides bursary and scholarship opportunities. For more information on national-based awards please visit www.scma.com.
"As an immigrant to Canada from China, I have strived to better educate myself for the future so that I can be a productive member of the society. I am a mother to two beautiful children aged six and eight, and have to deal with the challenges of being a good parent and also a student. This bursary money will really help me financially as I move to the last two semesters of the SCOM program."
