In 2006, Deanne Farrar (BMath '88) and Sean Capstick (BASC '89) established a fund for outstanding first-year undergraduate female students entering the Faculty of Mathematics and the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Waterloo. The scholarships were created in honour of Ms. Farrar's mother, Isabel Farrar who was a mathematics teacher and who played an instrumental role in encouraging her daughter and other young women to study mathematics. Several scholarships, valued at up to $4,000 each, will be awarded to outstanding students based on a combination of high school admission grades, results of the Math Contests as administered through CEMC (Mathematics students only), online video interview (Engineering only) and extracurricular achievement as assessed through the Admission Information Form.
