UCalgary Engineering Entrance Scholarships

This fall, the Schulich School of Engineering is again offering up to 50 entrance scholarships valued at $4,000 each. The Diversity Champions in Engineering Awards will support students who have overcome barriers while pursuing their education, those who have worked to promote inclusion in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM), and those who have ideas for how to make our school and profession more inclusive. All applicants to first-year engineering are eligible to apply for the awards.
According to Engineers Canada, only one per cent of undergraduate students in Canadian engineering programs identified as Indigenous Peoples, and only 20.7 per cent as female in 2016. Women account for only 12.8 per cent of the practicing profession of engineering in Canada. 
It is critical we continue to bring together a variety of perspectives within engineering for the profession to thrive.
Students who would benefit from these awards, encourages to apply for engineering at the University of Calgary and complete this brief award application. If they send it to us at sseawards@ucalgary.ca by January 9, 2020 they will be eligible for consideration.

Applications for Education, U of R


Students applying to the four year Elementary, Secondary, and Arts Education programs, as well as the five year programs (B.Ed./B.Kin, B.Mus Ed, and B.Ed/B.Sci) no longer need to complete the Teacher Education Application Profile (TEAP). Removing the TEAP will allow greater access to the direct entry English program, attracting a more diverse group of future teachers with varied skill sets, experiences, and backgrounds. Please note, however, that students applying to le Bac, or the After Degree (BEAD) programs will still need to complete the TEAP. Also note that the B. Mus.Ed program still requires it's audition component prior to finalizing acceptances.
To apply to the four year Elementary, Secondary, and Arts Education programs, as well as the five year programs (B.Ed./B.Kin, B.Mus Ed,and B.Ed/B.Sci ) students must select their appropriate Application Type from the drop down menu (ex: High School Student, College/University Student, etc.) on the online application. They will then select their preferred program under the Planned Program of Study (ex: Secondary Social Studies Education). This is the same process your students applying to most of the programs at the U of R follow, such as those applying to Arts, Engineering, Kinesiology, etc. They are also able to complete the paper application for undergraduate admission, if they prefer.
Student applying to le Bac must select Baccalauréat en éducation as their Application Type from the drop down menu when completing the online application.
