This award was established in 2013 by the Institute of Biomaterials and Biomedical Engineering (IBBME) to honour the career of former director, Professor Paul Santerre.
This scholarship is awarded to two students proceeding to second, third or fourth year and based on a demonstrated strong interest in biomedical engineering (i.e. pursuing an Engineering Science major in Biomedical Engineering Systems, a minor in Biomedical Engineering, or a minor in Bioengineering).
Additionally, candidates must be involved in any area of community service and/or extra-curricular activities, not just those related to biomedical engineering. Candidates must have achieved a minimum overall average of at least 80 per cent in the previous year. Awards are available for competitive renewal (i.e. incumbent students are eligible in subsequent years provided they meet the award criteria).
This award is one of the Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering’s series of in-course scholarships. Students are automatically considered based on the above academic criteria and community service / extra-curricular activities details indicated in your Online Engineering Portfolio.
