About Us

Founded in 1959, the Engineers Foundation provides scholarship funding and recognition to engineering students with demonstrated academic and leadership excellence. By encouraging them to pursue licensure and establish careers in the profession, and connecting them with resources along the way, we are proud to be building the future leaders of engineering.

Our scholarships demonstrate the commitment of the Ontario engineering profession to its future leaders. Each year, we provide $153,000 in scholarships to over 100 students at accredited engineering schools in Ontario. Since 1959, we have provided $3.1 million to over 3,000 deserving students, thanks to the generosity of our individual and corporate donors. All of our award recipients have achieved both academic and leadership excellence through high marks, extracurricular activities and volunteering, making them some of the brightest and most promising future engineers in Ontario.

Our
Vision

Our vision is to expand the assistance engineering students receive and the engineering network giving back to the next generation.

Our
Purpose

Our purpose is to nurture tomorrow’s engineers by providing deserving students with recognition, financial assistance and connections into the path to license.

We are deeply grateful to our professional partners, Professional Engineers Ontario (PEO) and Ontario Society of Professional Engineers (OSPE). Since the Foundation was founded by PEO in 1959, individual professional engineers have been the lifeblood of our work as steadfast donors and volunteers. By working with PEO and OSPE, as well as Engineers Without BordersESSCO, Engineers Canada, and our university and corporate partners, we aim to provide a network of support for aspiring engineers as they move toward licensure and establish careers in the profession.  

Make a difference to the future of an engineering student.
