The scholarship series has awarded close to $70,000 to deserving post-secondary students.

Mechanical Contractors Association of Canada (MCAC) has announced this year’s recipients of the Richard McKeagan Scholarship Series, which saw more than $17,000 awarded to students in the mechanical contracting and mechanical engineering fields.

The Richard McKeagan Scholarship Series, named in honour of past-CEO Richard McKeagan, is supported by MCAC Associate Members and MCA partners from across Canada who provide the funding for the program and the various scholarships offered. Since its launch in 2006, the scholarship series has awarded close to $70,000 to deserving post-secondary students.

The program is aimed at students in the mechanical field of study and has been broadened to include several new initiatives, including scholarships specifically for women in the mechanical field. This is in addition to the several scholarships available for financial assistance in the mechanical field of study.

This year, scholarships were available through the following MCAC Associate Members and MCA partners: Bradford White Canada, Federated Insurance, Masco/Delta, MCA Hamilton-Niagara, OS&B, Reliance Worldwide, Uponor, the Women in Mechanical Construction Initiative, and the broader Associate Membership of MCA Canada, which funds a single MCAC Associate Member Scholarship.
