The purpose of the prize is to recognize and reward students graduating from the Internationally-Educated Engineers Qualification (IEEQ) program. The prize is not restricted by gender, credit hours, country of origin, or other qualifiers. Beginning in 2016-2017 and ending in 2020-2021, one prize will be awarded at the spring convocation to a student who has graduated in the preceding October or February, or is eligible to graduate in the spring of the applicable academic year and who:
(1) has successfully completed the requirements for the Post-Baccalaureate Diploma in Engineering through the IEEQ program offered by the Faculty of Engineering.
(2) has achieved the highest diploma grade point average (minimum 3.5) in the IEEQ program.
The first prize will be awarded in the 2017 spring convocation session.
In the event of a tie, the prize will be offered to the student with the higher number of credit hours completed at the University of Manitoba.
The selection committee will be the scholarships, bursaries, and awards committee of the Faculty of Engineering and will also include the IEEQ Program Director (or designate).
