Canadian Engineering Memorial Foundation Graduate Scholarships
Jan 31, 2014
The Canadian Engineering Memorial Foundation was formed and incorporated in 1990 following the events in Montreal at École Polytechnique that resulted in the death of 14 young women ending their contributions to Canadian society. The initiative to establish CEMF was taken by Claudette MacKay–Lassonde, P.Eng., then President of the Professional Engineers of Ontario, together with a number of other concerned female engineers. CEMF is led by a group of prominent members of Canada's engineering and business communities and is funded entirely through donations from individual engineers, corporations, engineering faculties and the public. Edward Jones manages the financial portfolio which provides interest income used to support engineering scholarships, awards and activities. Each year the Foundation grants scholarships to outstanding female engineering students at the undergraduate and graduate levels of study. An increasing number of these scholarships are funded by Canadian Corporations who support our goals and objectives.
