James R. Pearcey Award

James R. Pearcey Award for Entrepreneurship

This award is the result of a generous donation by the donor, Mr. Wade. K. Dawe, B. Comm. ‘92. It is valued at portion of the income from the endowment up to $10,000.00 and is established in memory of James R. Pearcey, a Civil Engineering graduate and former president of his 1993 class, at Memorial University of Newfoundland. The award recipient will be a student in the Faculty of Business Administration in any academic year, in clear academic standing (though academic performance may be considered) and who shows clear evidence of a significant propensity toward entrepreneurial activities and study as assessed by a competition. Materials for submission to the competition may include an essay or business plan, or other materials that the applicant feels will demonstrate their entrepreneurial nature. Supporting documentation such as letters of reference, a resume or curriculum vitae may also be included. The recipient will be selected by a faculty committee, the composition of which will be determined by the Scholarships Office, but will include representation by both the Faculty of Business Administration and the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science. The award will be conferred by the Senate Committee on Undergraduate Scholarships, Bursaries and Awards based on the recommendation of the faculty committee.
