Hydro One is supporting women, black and Indigenous students for a better and brighter future.

It’s all part of the company’s One Awards scholarship program, geared at making the company a more diverse and inclusive workforce.

Alicia Sayers Company Spokesperson says students can apply today to scholarships in one of three categories: the Women in Engineering Award, The William Peyton Hubbard Award for black students, and the Leonard S. (Tony) Mandamin Award for Indigenous students.

“We want to support inspiring professionals and build a better and brighter future for Ontario. So, we want to recognize […] these outstanding students who we know are out there, and we just want to support them in their studies, but also in developing them as leaders because these opportunities and scholarships also come with the opportunity to work at Hydro One,” she said.

Sayers says the scholarships are only open to students who are currently enrolled in an Ontario college or university.

Within the three categories there are 24 scholarships available.

The deadline to apply is November 1, 2020.
