Women in Engineering Memorial Scholarship

This scholarship has been established to commemorate the sudden and tragic deaths of fourteen women at L'Ecole Polytechnique in Montreal on December 6, 1989. Thirteen of the women who died so violently were pursuing studies in engineering, historically a non- traditional field for women. It is hoped this annual scholarship will encourage more women to study and work in this profession, thereby increasing the contribution of women to engineering and scientific endeavours.

To be eligible, applicants must demonstrate a commitment to the advancement of women in Engineering fields and an active involvement in wider issues of social concern to women, as well as sound scholastic ability. The committee may also consider applications from female students already enrolled in Engineering studies, provided they meet the eligibility criteria above.
