Engineering Society Award (Scholarship)
The Engineering Society Award is the name of a set of scholarships provided by the Engineering Society through the Faculty of Applied Science and Engineering at the University of Toronto. It was established in 1997 by a levy fee of all undergraduate students, which was subsequently converted into an endowment. There are 12 such scholarships given each year worth approximately $3,333.
These awards are provided to students who demonstrate both academic ability and extra-curricular involvement within the undergraduate engineering community and with the Engineering Society. The award recipients are nominated by the Engineering Society Executive each year, and ratified by the Faculty's Scholarship and Awards Committee. The selection is based on students' submitted ePortfolios and demonstrated financial need through OSAP status.
Note that the award recipients for the Engineering Society Award Scholarship are selected entirely separately from the Engineering Society Awards, and have no relation to each other (although students who are heavily involved in the Engineering Society may receive both honours in a given year).
