EGEF is creating an endowment fund at The Winnipeg Foundation to support students who otherwise would not have an opportunity to become professional engineers and geoscientists. Our 1-year goal is $125,000, with a 2-year goal of $250,000. EGEF will work closely with Manitoba’s universities to provide funding for needs not addressed through existing bursaries and other programs.
Engineering companies, governments, utilities and the minerals industry are all looking for new professionals with the skills required to address the many issues in a changing world, who reflect the diversity of our society. However, many students face barriers to entrance into engineering and geoscience. Students graduating from high school, and others trying to enter our professions later in their careers, may not have the background or resources necessary to complete their degrees and succeed in these professions. Many students need to consider costs such as relocation, travel, child-care and housing. These and other barriers prevent or limit enthusiastic students from realizing their dream of becoming a professional engineer or geoscientist.
Your donation will help create a new generation of engineers and geoscientists to address future challenges.
