A new scholarship supporting young women entering the trades is now available from FIRST Robotics Canada and Build a Dream.

The two organizations both promote STEM careers to young people, with Build a Dream’s mandate specifically targeting female high school students.

To be eligible for one of the two annual Skilled Trade Scholarships – each valued at $3,000 – applicants must be female students currently enrolled in a Canadian high school.

Applicants must also be eligible to attend an accredited college no later than the fall semester of 2021, and agree to enroll as a full-time student in a skilled trade college program.


The successful candidate will have demonstrated strong leadership, a passion for STEM subjects, and will have been a part of a FIRST Robotics program, either through FIRST Robotics Competition or FIRST Tech Competition in 2019 or 2020.

The deadline to apply for the 2021 scholarship is Feb. 15. Click here for application details.
