The IEEE Canadian Foundation annually sponsors a number of scholarships.
Currently, the value of each is either $5,000 or $2,500.
Note Nominations must be complete and received by the posted
deadline in order to be considered.
This scholarship is called the IEEE Canadian Foundation Scholarship. The
scholarship is intended to encourage awareness of and participation in
the educational programs supported by the IEEE. It is intended to pay a
major portion of the final year tuition fees and related academic
expenses of a student who has demonstrated a previous commitment to the
IEEE McNaughton Learning Resource Centre and related IEEE activities,
and who indicates a desire to continue this activity. There are two
scholarship values to acknowledge that engineering program fees are
generally higher than those for technology programs.
Within the limitations imposed by course work, the Scholarship holder
is expected to work closely with the IEEE Student Branch executive, and
to be active in the IEEE McNaughton Learning Resource Centre.
All undergraduate student members of the IEEE who are registered in their penultimate
year and have been active in the Centre for a minimum of one year are eligible. (Note: only one scholarship will be awarded per institution per year.)
