Award type: 
Award description: 

A scholarship, valued at up to $1,500, will be awarded annually to a full-time undergraduate student enrolled in Year Two, Three, or Four majoring in any program in the Department of Combinatorics and Optimization in the Faculty of Mathematics who achieves the highest cumulative average (minimum 80%). This fund is made possible by donations from those inspired by William Tutte’s work. As a young man, William Tutte (1917-2002) worked as a code breaker at Bletchley Park in England during WWII. His work, in part, lead to the creation of COLOSSUS, a machine used to break codes on a regular basis throughout the remainder of the war, saving countless lives. In 1962, Tutte joined the Faculty of Mathematics at the University of Waterloo. He made a major contribution to establish the identity and reputation of UWaterloo, helping to attract combinatorialists from all over the world and assisted in founding the Department of Combinatorics and Optimization.
