Criteria: Applicants must be seeking assistance to complete training in an accepted course subject directly related to the HVACR industry. A course subject must constitute the principle focus of the programme, such as sheet metal, refrigeration technology, gas fitter, mechanical engineering, etc. Programmes which only touch on these technologies (such as power engineering) are not eligible. Consideration will be given to applicants in financial need based on an assessment by the student awards officer or equivalent. Priority will be given to those already enrolled in a programme but whose financial circumstances may force them to drop out short of completion. Applicants should be willing to allow HRAI the privilege of being informed regarding their successful completion of the course. Applications must be submitted by the student awards officer or equivalent of a recognized educational institution. An outline of the educational programme and associated costs must be submitted with the application. Copies of the application are available from your student awards/bursary officer or by contacting HRAI’s Sabrina Tai at 1-800-267-2231 ext. 222. Applications are reviewed twice a year and the deadlines for submission are February 28 and November 30. Bursaries will be awarded by the Orvil Davie Fund Committee only when suitable candidates are determined and funds are available. A response can be expected within six weeks of the deadline.
