Helping Students Realize a Dream
Membership Has Its Privileges
The Toronto Transportation Club (TTC) is pleased to offer financial assistance to deserving students entering post-secondary education. Proceeds from our events are used to ensure that our Scholarship Fund can continue to deliver support to the students who need our help in realizing their dream of a higher education.
As a member of the TTC for one (1) calendar year, you are eligible to have your dependent child (including grandchildren, adopted children, stepchildren and wards in legal guardianship) apply for offered scholarships.
Scholarships are open to graduating students entering their first year of studies at an accredited University or Community College and will be paid annually to a maximum of four years.
An independent adjudicator reviews all applications in confidence and grants the Scholarship Award accordingly.
Other Educational Support
In addition to the scholarship opportunities offered to TTC Members and their dependents, the TTC also supports students in the Supply Chain Management course at Humber College.
The TTC has pledged its financial assistance for a three-year Scholarship Program to Humber's post-degree registrants. With your support, future generations in the transportation business will have the opportunity to accelerate their own career as well as the industry
