The Scholarship

The RBC Scholarship in Software Engineering is Awarded annually to students in year 3 of the Software Engineering program within Western Engineering or students in year 4 of a concurrent BESc/HBA degree that includes Software Engineering based on academic achievement and an interest in pursuing a career in big data, technology, or software engineering.

Candidates must be Canadian citizens or eligible to work in Canada. This scholarship will continue for an additional year provided the recipient is in Software Engineering or a concurrent BESc/HBA degree that includes Software Engineering and maintains an 80% average with a full course load. If a recipient selected does not qualify to maintain the scholarship, a replacement recipient from the applicable cohort will be selected. A selection committee made up of representatives from the Faculty of Engineering will short list applicants for the scholarship. Short listed candidates will be interviewed by representatives of RBC and the Faculty of Engineering RBC Scholarship Selection Committee.

An offer of full-time employment with RBC may also be extended pending the successful completion of the program and work term at RBC`s sole discretion. A recipient is not obligated to participate in the work term or accept employment with RBC following graduation to receive or retain the scholarship.
