Fletcher Foundation Matching Donation Program

The Fletcher Foundation 2-for-1 Matching Donation Program raises funds for bursaries that support educational initiatives, projects and programs that advance the engineering technology and applied science profession and the student academic experience at Ontario colleges. The funds raised from the Matching Donation Program have helped to increase endowment funds at colleges and contributed to the Enhancing Educational Experience grant. Thanks to the Matching Donation Program exceptional engineering technology and applied science students facing financial barriers have more opportunities to reach their full potential and are able to focus on accomplishments that will take them on the road to success.  

Every donation makes a difference. When you give, OACETT will match your gift two times, tripling the impact. 

Enhancing Educational Experience Grant

The Fletcher Foundation established the Enhancing Educational Experience grant in 2018, which is an annual grant of up to $20,000 available as direct matching funds to support innovative initiatives designed to enhance the educational experience for students in OACETT-eligible programs in Ontario colleges.  Special consideration is given to programs designed to engage non-traditional audiences, such as women and Indigenous peoples.

The application deadline has now closed for the September 2023 academic year. We would like to thank all applicants. For more information, contact Alla Bondarenko at

Generation Award

The Fletcher Foundation offers the Fletcher Foundation Generation Award to OACETT members' children, grandchildren and spouses who attend an engineering technology or an applied science program at an Ontario college. The bursary amount is $1,000, which is awarded to one recipient randomly drawn from eligible applications. You can find details about the bursary on the application form.

OACETT Engineering Technology Award

Through its 25 for 25 campaign, the Fletcher Foundation has worked with the colleges to establish endowments that fund an annual $1,000 bursary at most institutions, called the OACETT Engineering Technology Award.  Award recipients are selected by criteria established by each college, but the overarching is demonstrated financial need.  These endowed bursaries also recognize academic achievement and support future promise in the technology profession.
