The following are some of the awards, bursaries and competitions available to Aviation Flight Management students as administered though our Student Finance Office.

The Webster Trophy Competition

All Aviation Flight Management students are strongly encouraged to enter The Webster Trophy Competition. This is a prestigious national flying competition which is run annually to determine “The Top Amateur Pilot in Canada”. It is closely watched by industry. The winner and runner up are presented awards, and are granted an interview with Air Canada, once the appropriate flying qualifications have been met. Our college has had two first place winners in recent years.  With few exceptions over the last few years, a Confederation College student has won the regional competition, and attended the finals. They generally do very well in this tough competition, with 2 second place and 2 first place winners.

The Women in Technology Memorial Bursary

This bursary was initiated after the slaying of 14 young women in a massacre in Montreal in 1989. It is directed to women who show promise in their chosen field, which must fall into the technology category.
