As Canada’s economy becomes more knowledge-based, graduate studies become more important. Vision 2010 calls on Waterloo Engineering to respond to the needs of Canadian industry by expanding our graduate program dramatically.
But recruiting these bright young people won’t be easy: competition for the best graduate students is fierce. We need top scholarships to draw top students.
That’s why we’re raising $23 million to create 209 new graduate scholarships – sure to be among the most prestigious awards available to graduate students in Canada.
Funding scholarships is a smart investment too: payouts on our scholarship endowments will be matched by the university – effectively doubling the value of a donation.
