Prize for a Student in Technical Training

What would you suggest to encourage women to choose a traditionally male-dominated occupation?

The Fédération des cégeps awards a cash prize of $2000 to a graduate enrolled in technical training program offered in a public college-level educational institution. The student must have completed her program of study by June 30, 2017.


In addition to the answers to the mandatory questions, the candidate's portfolio must include the answers to the following questions (a maximum of one page):

  • What steps do you think colleges should take to motivate young women to study in traditionally male-dominated fields?
  • In your opinion, how can Québec society help female graduates of technical training programs integrate into employment sectors dominated by men?
