The Toyota Canada Foundation will fund scholarships for Black students pursuing post-secondary education in automotive technology.
Scholarship recipients will be selected and awarded by Black Business and Professional Association’s (BBPA) National Scholarship Program.
Founded in 1983, the BBPA is a non-profit, charitable organization that addresses equity and opportunity for the Black community in business, employment, education and economic development. Its National Scholarship Program was established in 1986 to reduce the rate at which Black students drop out of school despite their academic success due to a lack of funds.
Over the next two years, BBPA will select six Black students pursuing post-secondary education in a Canadian automotive technology program to receive a Toyota Canada Foundation scholarship. Each student will receive $5,000 per year, for two years, for a total of $10,000.
The next application deadline for the scholarships is Summer 2022. Anyone interested should apply directly through the BBPA’s website.
