CN Pensioners Associations, Inc.


CN is proud to announce that twenty-one of our employees' and pensioners' children or grandchildren have won CN Scholarships for the 2012/2013 academic year.

The CN Scholarship Program encourages our youth in both Canada and the U.S. through four different categories, administered by the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada (AUCC) and by the Scholarship Management Services in the U.S.:

Bravo to all the winners of CN Scholarships for the 2012/2013 academic year! And stay tuned; we'll send you more information on how to apply for this academic year's scholarships.

Here's the list of our deserving winners:

Undergraduate Scholarships - $2,000
While our scholarship program recognizes education achievements and excellence in a variety of domains, we would like to acknowledge students enrolled in programs relevant to CN's core business such as Transportation, Mechanical, Engineering, Logistics and I.T., to name a few. Accordingly, we will consider all applications based on their merits but give priority to CN's preferred fields of study.
