Faculty of Engineering Scholarships

Linamar Scholarship for Women in Engineering and Business

DEADLINE - February 15, 2019 


Awarded annually to female students entering HBA 1 with the intention of completing the concurrent degree program in Engineering and Ivey (BESc/HBA) based on academic achievement and a demonstrated interest in pursuing a career in engineering and business. Students will be required to complete an application.


A limited number of applicants will be chosen to participate in an interview in April. Final decisions regarding selected recipients will be mailed with HBA offers of admission to the program in June. Candidates must be Canadian citizens or eligible to work in Canada. This scholarship will continue for the second and third years of the concurrent degree program. All recipients will have an opportunity to participate in a summer co-op with Linamar Corporation following Years 3 and 4.


An offer of full-time employment at Linamar Corporation may also be extended pending successful completion of the program and co-op terms. A recipient is not obligated to participate in the summer co-op or accept employment at Linamar Corporation following graduation to retain the scholarship. If a recipient fails to complete the summer co-op for any reason, the recipient will still retain the scholarship provided that the conditions of the scholarship are met.

This scholarship was created through a generous gift from the Hasenfratz and Newton Families and Linamar Corporation to promote and encourage women to pursue the concurrent degree program in Engineering and Ivey (BESc/HBA).

External Award Scholarships

The James Dyson Award

Is open to current university students of engineering, product design and industrial design – and those who have graduated in these subjects in the last four years. We'll ask to see official documentation that proves it.

If you don't want to work alone, or if you studied something else but have a brilliant idea you want to share, you can still enter as part of a team. Your team leader must have studied one of the qualifying subjects, and all team members must be (or have been within the last four years) enrolled for at least one semester in an undergraduate or graduate programme.

To enter, you'll first need to register and upload proof that you're a student or recent graduate in one of the qualifying subjects.

Once registered, you'll need to complete our online form. We'd like you to tell us:

  • What your invention does
  • Where you got your inspiration
  • How it works
  • How you developed your design
  • What sets it apart
  • What the future holds for it
