Four students awarded scholarships for Muslim youth

Friday, October 7, 2022

Four Waterloo Engineering students have been awarded $5,000 scholarships created to reward high-achieving Muslim students for outstanding contributions to their communities.

Youssra Rahham of chemical engineering, Azwad Abid of systems design engineering, Rodaina Aboelela of architectural engineering and Subha Azrin of computer engineering are among 74 MAX Scholarships award winners across Canada.

Launched in 2016, the MAX Scholarship Fund honours Muslim youth who are eager to continue learning, creating and having an impact on their communities throughout their post-secondary education. 

Scholarship recipients received their awards in late September at a virtual reception.
