Ontario Professional Engineers Foundation for Education

Student Awards

These awards provide an opportunity for the engineering profession in Ontario to demonstrate its commitment to high standards of both technical competence and leadership in the development of future professional engineers.

In all cases, the individual award recipients are selected by the Dean and/or Faculty Council of the engineering school. Students interested in applying should contact their university's awards officer. Every effort is made to arrange or participate in a suitable awards ceremony at which the scholarships can be presented by a representative of the Foundation.

Engineers Without Borders Scholarship - Leaders for the Future

Engineers Without Borders Scholarship - Leaders for the Future

In November 2003 a new scholarship "Leaders for the Future" was initiated to recognize outstanding leadership qualities of Ontario engineering students who are selected for overseas assignments with Engineers Without Borders. EWB was formed in 2000 to improve the lives of people in developing countries through the application of appropriate small scale technology. EWB is a Canadian development organization that relies on engineering students for overseas placements.

To be eligible for this scholarship, students must be enrolled in an accredited engineering program at an Ontario university and must have completed, or have been selected to complete, an EWB volunteer placement. Recipients must be outstanding leaders in their school or community and have demonstrated a commitment to people in developing communities. Applicants must also submit a 500 word essay supporting their qualifications and interest. A joint FFE-EWB committee will evaluate applications and select the scholarship recipient. If none of the applicants in a given year meet the selection criteria, the scholarship may not be awarded. Ideally the scholarship will be awarded at the EWB Annual Meeting, usually held in February.
