A new Faculty of Engineering measure aims to elevate underrepresented minorities in engineering to propel a culture shift in workforces that better reflects the communities the profession serves.
The faculty has increased its undergraduate entrance scholarships for Black, Indigenous, and female students as well as for students who identify as non-binary genders — including but not limited to gender fluid, non-binary, trans-man, trans-woman, and two-spirited — to $5,000 and topped them off with a guaranteed summer research position in the Faculty of Engineering following the completion of their first year, valued at an additional $10,000 and unique among Canadian universities.
The University of Windsor is offering to match up to $500,000 in donations to the scholarships. Help elevate these students to new heights in their journey to become engineering professionals. Find more details at uwindsor.ca/engineering/elevate.
