Airbus Supports Canada’s Next Generation of Engineers by Offering Scholarships

Airbus Canada commits to contributing to the education and training of aerospace students in Canada. The company has announced two new partnerships, one with Polytechnique Montréal and another with McGill University, to offer ten scholarships, five at each institution, for the next four years.

“Airbus strongly believes in the importance of developing the next generation of engineers at Canada’s top academic institutions and in the benefits of partnerships with industry”, said Benoît Schultz, President and CEO of Airbus Canada. “Many of the engineers working on the A220 program at Mirabel studied in these local institutions and we are pleased to be able to contribute to the development of the next generation of engineers through these scholarships.”

Airbus Canada is driven by the desire to make a positive difference by helping and contributing to the local communities where the company operates, in many areas such as philanthropy, student education and mentoring. In addition, since 2018, Airbus has also been contributing to education for students from École Nationale d’aérotechnique, and more recently, in helping to provide scholarships, as well as supporting other organizations in Quebec and Canada.

This latest contribution represents a commitment to education of over CAD$ 200,000 over four years.
