Creating Opportunities in STEM: Telesat’s 2023 Scholarship Program

Today, women are under-represented in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) and that needs to change. The 2023 Telesat Scholarship Program is aimed at closing this gender gap and inspiring the next-generation of female innovators and leaders. This annual program will provide eight (8) students a scholarship of $5,000 CAD each.
