In its third year, the Equity & Diversity (E&D) Scholarship provides support to underrepresented communities in STEAM fields
For our third annual Equity and Diversity (E&D) Scholarship, 44 students focused on a career in science, technology, engineering, arts, or math (STEAM)—out of a total of 435 applicants from around the globe—were selected to receive funding for their continued education.
Representing the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, India, and Jamaica, the selected students are currently pursuing their education in a wide range of disciplines, including biomedical engineering, computer science education, architecture, physics, artificial intelligence, art and drama, and more. Several of the recipients also participate in organizations Stantec sponsors, such as the Architecture, Construction, Engineering (ACE) Mentor Program, Engineers Without Borders, the National Society of Black Engineers, Habitat for Humanity, Relay for Life, and the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers. As well as the scholarships, seven internships will begin in May and June in the Buildings, Water, and Infrastructure teams in the US (Florida, Texas, Virginia, and Pennsylvania) and Canada (Alberta).
The Scholarship highlights one aspect of Stantec's dedication to fairness and inclusion and diversity. Our efforts to support racial and social equity are centered on allocating resources to STEAM education. The $200,000 scholarship fund is intended to further educational opportunities for and provide financial aid to students from historically underrepresented communities such as Black and Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC).
