Wally McIntosh Memorial Scholarship

Wally McIntosh would certainly be proud of the hardworking students recognized each year through a Memorial Scholarhip award presented in his name by the Ontario Sheet Metal Contractors Association (OSM). The former OSM president who passed away in 1982 at the height of his career always held education in high esteem.

Each year presents a new challenge for the panel of five judges who decide on the two most deserving applicants. Not only are their academic achievements considered, but so are their extra-curricular activities, community outreach, leadership qualities and employment history.

Each year OSM offers two $2500 scholarships to children of OSM member firm employees who are graduating from high school, and entering college or university studies.

The scholarship fund also offers an annual $1000 award to the graduated union apprentice of the Ontario Sheet Metal Workers' Training Centre achieving the highest averaged marks in all three day school programs. The qualifying apprentice must have attended all three phases of day school at the training centre.
