Award Information
Name:
Lafarage Engineering Access Program (ENGAP) Scholarship
Description:
Lafarge established an endowment fund at the University of Manitoba in 2015 with a gift of $125,000. The purpose of the fund is to provide scholarships to Indigenous undergraduate students pursuing studies in Civil Engineering through the Engineering Access Program (ENGAP) in the Faculty of Engineering. Each year, beginning in 2017-2018, the available annual income from the fund will be used to offer one scholarship to an undergraduate student who:
(1) is a member of ENGAP;
(2) is enrolled full-time (minimum 80% course load) in the second, third or fourth year of study in the Bachelor of

Science in Engineering (Civil) degree program;
(3) has achieved a minimum degree grade point average of 3.0;
(4) has demonstrated volunteerism and community service.

Candidates will be required to submit an application that includes a statement (maximum 500 words) and one letter of reference, both indicating how they meet criterion (4).

In any given year, if there is no student who meets all of the criteria, the award may be offered to a student enrolled in a minimum of six credit hours in the Internationally Educated Engineers Qualification (IEEQ) – Post Baccalaureate Diploma Engineering Program, and is in good standing as determined by the Director of the IEEQ Program.

Each year, the scholarship recipient will be offered a work placement with Lafarge.
