Stantec’s Equity & Diversity Scholarship now accepting applications

Program supports students pursuing STEAM education, providing experience and exposure to their field


Stantec, a global leader in sustainable design and engineering, has launched its fourth annual Stantec Equity & Diversity Scholarship Fund. This scholarship will support future industry leaders and innovators who are from historically underrepresented groups pursuing science, technology, engineer, arts/architecture, and math (STEAM) fields.

“Stantec’s Equity and Diversity Scholarship Fund provides students with exceptional experience and gives our recipients exposure to our business, our work, and our culture”,” says president and chief executive officer, Gord Johnston. “Our past recipients have made a true impact on our organization by providing fresh and creative perspectives. I look forward to meeting the next group of recipients and learning as much from them, as they learn from us.”

Stantec will award $200,000 (CAD) in global scholarships for the upcoming annual academic year (2024-2025) as well as opportunities for up to 10 paid internships in 2024. 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 2023, Stantec awarded 43 scholarships and 8 internships to students in locations across the world, that included Canada, the United States, India, Australia, and the Jamaica.

“Ever since I was young, I’ve always been interested in traffic and roadway design. I knew early on that I wanted to make a societal impact as either a roadway or traffic engineer and I’m excited to pursue a career in either of those fields to my part in improving society,” says Jordan Metellus, 2023 intern and scholarship recipient. “I started working and saving when I was 16 for university but I knew I would need outside assistance in order to pursue my dream of gaining a college education. Thanks to the E&D Scholarship this dream of mine is becoming a reality and it has helped me with many of my college expenses.”

To be eligible for this award, applicants must be enrolled in a college, university, or post-secondary institution in the 2024-25 academic year.
