Stantec Inc. invests in UBC School of Engineering students in the Okanagan

Faculty of Applied Science, the University of British Columbia – Stantec Inc., one of North America’s largest professional design and consulting companies, has recently donated $9,000 to scholarships for UBC Okanagan Engineering students. Stantec, which specializes in planning, engineering, architecture, surveying, and project management, has a strong presence in the BC Interior, and wanted to help ensure that students entering engineering at UBC Okanagan had the support and encouragement they needed to pursue their educational goals.

The first Stantec Inc., Scholarship in Engineering will be provided in Spring 2006, and will award $3,000 each year for three years to a top engineering student who has an interest in sustainability and who has demonstrated good communication and leadership skills.

This is the first scholarship that has been set up for students at UBC Okanagan Engineering, and the Faculty of Applied Science would like to thank Stantec for their generosity and commend them for supporting the program.
