Universities Canada establishes Flight 302 Legacy scholarship with $2.5M Transport Canada donation


Universities Canada has recently established the Flight 302 Legacy Award, a new scholarship that honours the victims of the Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 tragedy. In tribute to the passengers on the flight who were en route to a United Nations environmental conference, this scholarship program will have a special focus on providing support to students in the fields of environmental preservation and humanitarianism. Transport Canada will provide $2.5M to support the scholarship program over a five-year period, which will be used to create over 40 non-renewable scholarships–valued at $10K each–annually.
