Up to five awards, valued at $5,000 each, will be provided to full-time undergraduate students who self-identify as Black or Indigenous and who are entering Year One of any program in the Faculty of Engineering.
- To be eligible for consideration, candidates must be Canadian citizens or permanent residents.
- For the purpose of this award, an Indigenous person is a person who self-identifies as First Nations (Status/Non-Status), Métis, and/or Inuit/Inuk as defined in the Canadian Constitution Act 1982.
Selection will be based on a combination of academic excellence (minimum 80% admission average) as well as extracurricular and leadership involvement assessed through the Admission Information Form (AIF). Recipients will be encouraged to engage in outreach activities in their community and/or high school to create pathways for future students and additional financial incentives will be provided to support these endeavours.
This award is made possible by numerous donors that contributed to the Engineering Diversity Fund established by the Faculty of Engineering.
Application deadline: April 15.
