New York – Stantec has launched its third annual Stantec Equity & Diversity Scholarship. This scholarship is designed to support future industry leaders and innovators who are from historically underrepresented groups pursuing science, technology, engineer, arts/architecture, and math (STEAM) fields.
Stantec will award $200,000 in global scholarships for the upcoming annual academic year (2023-24) as well as opportunities for more than 20 paid internships in 2023. The Equity & Diversity Scholarship is part of Stantec’s broader commitment to equity, diversity and inclusion within the company, and is an example of the firm’s initiatives aimed at supporting members of the BIPOC and LGBTQ+ community, people with disabilities, veterans, and first-generation college students who are exploring a STEAM-related education. In 2022, Stantec awarded 41 scholarships and 10 internships to students in locations across the world, that included Canada, the United States, India, Australia, and the United Kingdom.
To be eligible for this award, applicants must be enrolled in a college, university, or post-secondary institution in the 2023-24 academic year. An independent selection committee will evaluate the complete applications and select recipients considering educational goals, community service and leadership through extracurricular activities and overall career ambitions. Scholarships will be awarded in February 2023 and internships will be interviewed in 2022.
The deadline to apply is October 14.
“This scholarship has allowed me to focus more on my studies and artwork rather than how I’m going to pay for college, and I learned so much over the eight weeks of my internship,” says Emerson Harman, 2022 intern and scholarship recipient. “During my time at Stantec, I attended as many of the intern programs as I could, ranging from corporate sustainability to model-based design. I used new programs for the projects I worked on which I might now be able to apply to my work going forward. I am honored to have been selected for both the scholarship and the internship!”
