Eligible programs of study

The J. Armand Bombardier Foundation offers a scholarship program for students pursuing a recognized program of study leading to a Diploma of Vocational Studies (DEP), an Attestation of Vocational Specialization (ASP), an Attestation of College Studies (AEC), a Diploma of College Studies (DEC) or a Bachelor’s degree. The scholarships awarded are open to all fields of activity.

Eligibility criteria

  • Place of residence: The student must reside in the MRC of Val-Saint-François or Acton, or in the municipalities of Saint-Joachim-de-Shefford, Shefford, Warden, and Waterloo.
  • Be a full-time student
  • Family income
  • Academic results

Amount of scholarships awarded annually

  • Vocational and college level: $1,000
  • University undergraduate program: $2,500

All the scholarships are payable in two equal installments. The first installment will be paid upon acceptance of the scholarship; the second installment will be paid when the student begins the second semester of the academic year and has sent the documents establishing this fact.

The J. Armand Bombardier Foundation reserves the right to stop the second payment of the scholarship at any time, if the statement of grades indicates poor results or failures, or if the proof of enrollment are not provided.

Special cases

  • Cooperative education program: students are eligible if they are enrolled in a program of study that requires full-time paid internships in the work environment, in addition to courses. The amount of the scholarship will be divided into two installments, regardless of the internship period, and will be subject to the same conditions as students enrolled in a regular program.
  • Return to school: scholarship applications by students returning to school are accepted, if the student meets the eligibility criteria.
  • 1st cycle PhD Programs (medicine, dentistry, etc.): Students enrolled in such programs are eligible.
