This scholarship is called the IEEE Canadian Foundation Scholarship. The scholarship is intended to encourage awareness of and participation in the educational programs supported by the IEEE. It is intended to pay a major portion of the final year tuition fees and related academic expenses of a student who has demonstrated a previous commitment to the IEEE McNaughton Learning Resource Centre and related IEEE activities, and who indicates a desire to continue this activity. There are two scholarship values to acknowledge that engineering program fees are generally higher than those for technology programs.

Expected Goals
Within the limitations imposed by course work, the Scholarship holder is expected to work closely with the IEEE Student Branch executive, and to be active in the IEEE McNaughton Learning Resource Centre.

All undergraduate student members of the IEEE who are registered in their penultimate year and have been active in the Centre for a minimum of one year are eligible. (Note: only one scholarship will be awarded per institution per year.)

Selection of Nominee
Branch Counselors, will determine the nominee, based on their knowledge of the eligible candidates' activities in the IEEE McNaughton Learning Resource Centre and the IEEE Student Branch.   Once the nominee is determined, the Branch Counselor will submit an online nomination form.

Report on Activities
The nominee will submit a declaration form detailing past and planned IEEE and Centre activities.   It is strongly suggested that the nominee reads the on-line form beforehand very carefully and makes sure to include all the information requested. NOTE: Centre leadership activities are the most significant.

The counselor nomination and the student declaration form must be submitted on-line using the "applications and nominations" link on the left side of this page by March 15 (or other submission deadlines as approved from time to time by the Board of Directors).

The Decision Process
The Grants Committee of the IEEE Canadian Foundation will review and rank the nominations, and forward their recomendations to the Board of Directors of the IEEE Canadian Foundation, who will determine the recipients at their first meeting of each year, normally held in early April.

Nominees will be notified via e-mail by the Foundation, as soon as possible following the meeting of the Board of Directors. Each recipient's University (or College) will be contacted by the Foundation regarding the awarding of the scholarship and financial arrangements. Payment will be made directly to the educational institution.

A framed certificate will be presented to the Scholarship holder by the Section Chair at a suitable IEEE (Branch or Section) Meeting.
