Undergraduate student
Field of Study:

Engineering remains a field sorely lacking in diversity, both in terms of gender and race.

BIPOC engineers make up a minority of engineers, with Black engineers in particular going highly underrepresented. In addition to depriving future engineers of mentors and continuing the cycle of underrepresentation, this lack of diversity hinders the industry as a whole by limiting the voices and ideas present.

This scholarship seeks to support students of color who are pursuing their dream careers in engineering despite the challenges they face.

Any BIPOC undergraduate student who is pursuing engineering may apply for this scholarship opportunity, but applicants who are enrolled in co-op engineering programs are preferred.

To apply, tell us why you’re pursuing engineering, what hands-on experience you have, and if your experience has been part of your co-op engineering program.

Selection Criteria:
Ambition, Drive, Passion

Why are you thinking of engineering as a career path? What sort of hands-on engineering experience have you participated in thus far? Please mention if your hands-on experience is part of your co-op engineering program.
