Alumni scholarship supports diversity and inclusion

Thursday, June 23, 2022

Looking back on their undergraduate years, Michelle Liu (she/her) and Allie Kennington (they/them) wish there had been more on-campus support and mentorship for them as 2SLGBTQ+ engineering students.

As alumni, Liu (BASc ’18 and MASc ’20, civil engineering) and Kennington (BASc ’19 and MASc ’22, geological engineering), are now providing their support through the Liu-Kennington Award for the 2SLGBTQ+ Engineering Community, the first of its type for this specific group offered at any Faculty of Engineering in Canada. 

Launched last year, the $1,000 scholarship is awarded annually to an undergraduate student enrolled in year two, three or four in any Waterloo Engineering program.
