Term Activity Report (FOE) Awards
Each term the Department gives out Faculty of Engineers Awards (FOEs), in the amount of $1,500 each to students who have shown strong merit in the previous term (grades, publications, conferences, etc.). The ECE Graduate Studies Committee meets once a term to determine who will receive the awards. The minimum eligibility requirements for this award are as follows;
- max. 3 awards within 6 terms of a MASc program.
- max. 6 awards within 12 terms of a PhD program
- cannot have incomplete (INC) or did not write (DNW) grade
- cannot have Probationary status
- must be a full-time active student within your program time limits at time of receiving award
- must have at least 80% Overall Average
- must have submitted an Activity Report for previous term with a satisfactory evaluation
- must be correctly completed with the relevant information in the appropriate section
- must be a registered student in the term in which the award will be paid out
Meeting these minimum requirements does not guarantee you an award but rather gets you on a list of eligible recipients from which the awardees will be selected.
Part-time students are not eligible for any awards, scholarships or OSAP and must be self-funded.
