This fund has been created by family, friends, and faculty members of the Department of Applied Mathematics to honour the memory of Professor R. A. Wentzell who was a valued member of the Department of Applied Mathematics for over 20 years.                                                                        No application is needed

Hélène and Ray McLenaghan Award

One award, valued at up to $1,200, is provided annually to an outstanding undergraduate student entering third or fourth year in French Studies or Applied Mathematics. The recipient must have a minimum overall average of 75%, proven community involvement, and demonstrated financial need. This award is made possible by a donation from Professor Helene McLenaghan (Language Instructor, French Studies) and Professor Ray McLenaghan (Professor Emeritus, Applied Mathematics). Interested students should submit an application through the Student Awards & Financial Aid Office by October 15.

McLenaghan International Study Abroad Award

An award valued at $1,200 will be provided annually to a full-time undergraduate student who participates in an approved academic exchange or study-abroad term. Eligible candidates include: third-year students enrolled in a French Studies program travelling to France to study at the University of Nantes or other approved school; or third- and fourth-year students enrolled in a program in the Faculty of Mathematics, with preference to students in Applied Mathematics, studying at an approved school (in the United Kingdom, Europe or the United States). Selection will be based on academic achievement (minimum 75% overall average) and a personal letter describing planned learning outcomes. Financial need may also be considered. Preference will be given to students who will be travelling to an unfamiliar country where they will experience a different culture in a new learning environment. This award is made possible by a donation from Professor Helene McLenaghan (Language Instructor, French Studies) and Professor Ray McLenaghan (Professor Emeritus, Applied Mathematics), to encourage students to enhance their Waterloo studies with an international study experience. Interested students should submit an application through the Student Awards & Financial Aid Office  by July 15.
