Civil Engineering student, Amanda Pushka, wins Canadian Engineering Memorial Foundation Undergraduate Ambassador Award
Congratulations to Civil Engineering student, Amanda Pushka, on being awarded with the Canadian Engineering Memorial Foundation Undergraduate Ambassador Award.
The Canadian Engineering Memorial Foundation was founded in 1990 to develop scholarship and award programs that encourage women to choose engineering as a career to honour the memory of the 14 women at École Polytechnique whose contributions to Canada ended on December 6, 1989.
Each year CEMF offers up to five $5,000 Engineering Ambassador Scholarships to young women across Canada who are proven leaders, active volunteers in their communities and act as mentors to other young women to encourage them to pursue a career in engineering.
Scholarship recipients act as ambassadors to the field of engineering and serve as role models for other young women to encourage them to become professional engineers. While recognizing academic excellence is important, the CEMF Engineering Ambassador Scholarships are not awarded based on academic achievement. Instead, the focus is on female students who are proven leaders in their community and who have dedicated time to extra-curricular activities and volunteerism while serving as a role model to others.
