Scholarship Type: Award
Description: Granted to a student in their second year of study in the Faculty of Sustainable Design Engineering program who is registered with UPEI Accessibility Services (mental health support) and is in financial need. If there are no qualifying Engineering candidates, a student in one of UPEI?s STEM programs will be selected. If there are two equally qualifying candidates, preference will be given to a woman student. This award will be renewable for the successful recipient?s third and fourth year of study.
Background: In 1980, Susan Claire (Robertson) Cameron, daughter of Mark and Betty Robertson, graduated as one of the first two women with a Diploma of Engineering. This program supported the studies needed for a further degree in Mechanical Engineering from UNB, a career in the Royal Canadian Air Force and then as a professional in Project and Change Management. This award is offered to a student who may need support to pursue their goals. Additionally, this award is offered in recognition of the support from Susan Claire's father, Mark Robertson, who encouraged her to enter what was at the time a non-traditional field for women.
