Scholarships & Awards

Every year, students in the Faculty of Engineering have access to more than $1.5 million in scholarships. Many of these scholarships are available to Chemical and Materials Engineering students. Scholarships can be broken down into the following categories:

Entrance Awards

Entrance Awards are for students who are entering the first year within the Faculty of Engineering directly from high school or who have taken time off after high school and are entering with less than 24 postsecondary transfer credits.

Visit the Office of the Registrar's website for a list of Entrance Awards.

Continuing Student Awards

Continuing Student Awards are for students who have successfully completed at least one year in our program and are continuing on into a further year of study in the same degree program. This award category can be further separated into Awards by Nomination and Awards by Application.

  • Awards by Nomination: Potential nominees for these awards are automatically generated by the Faculty of Engineering and are decided upon in consultation with student advisors from all four of our undergraduate departments. For a complete list of awards in this category please visit the Office of the Registrar & Student Awards' Continuing Awards page.
  • Awards by Application: Potential nominees must submit applications to the Faculty of Engineering, their department or external parties as indicated on the award criteria. Award criteria and application process varies from award to award and in some cases can be quite extensive. Awards are then adjudicated by an awards committee that may be comprised of members of the Faculty of Engineering or by external parties as laid out in the award details. For a complete list of awards in this category, please visit the Faculty of Engineering's Awards by Application page.
