WEM Scholarship Recipients
The Women in Engineering Memorial Scholarship was established to honour the memory of fourteen women who were violently murdered on December 6, 1989 because they were women. Thirteen were engineering students and one was staff support at L’Ecole Polytechnique in Montreal. The scholarship seeks to encourage more women to study engineering, thereby increasing the contribution of women in engineering and scientific endeavours and challenging bias against women’s full participation.
At least one $2500 scholarship is awarded each year. In addition to sound scholastic ability, 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. Funding is provided by the MUN Faculty of Engineering & Applied Science, C-CORE, the MUN Alumni Association and individual contributions.
