Awards for Women in Engineering

Each year CEMF offers a number of Graduate and Undergraduate Engineering Ambassador Awards to young women across Canada who are proven leaders, active volunteers in their communities and mentors to other young women to encourage them to follow an engineering path.

John Evans, P.Eng was a Director and Vice-President of the Foundation, a committed supporter of women in engineering and a CEMF scholarship judge. His legacy included a donation for an award to be made to a young Canadian woman entering an accredited engineering program in Canada from high school and it is not based on academic achievement. This $5,000 award also includes an engineering work placement opportunity with Fortis Inc. at one of their Canadian utilities.
