Supply Chain & Logistics Association Canada has a long history of supporting supply chain education through program development, accreditation and the Student Paper Competition. In 2011, we revisited our student membership to make it more affordable and more relevant.
Today we are pleased to announce the following programs specifically geared to help students aiming for a supply chain career fund their education, broaden their knowledge and engage with the supply chain community.
Student Paper Award
***Please note this contest is not available for 2013
This is the chance to show the supply chain community what you have learned! We are looking for an original paper on a supply chain & logistics topic. There are regional prizes of $500 each and a grand national prize of $2,000 plus a free pass to the annual conference in Toronto. This contest is open to supply chain students across Canada. All travel and accommodation will be covered for the award winner to attend the Supply Chain Canada conference in May.
Each year SCL awards two bursaries of $750 each to students in full-time supply chain programs for the upcoming academic year September 2013 to Spring 2014. If you are continuing your education, be sure to fill out an application. We will be accepting applications starting June 3rd, 2013 for the Fall/Winter term
