Healthcare Engineering Scholarships

Three endowed scholarships from alumni of the Faculty

  1. 6T6 Industrial Engineering 50th Anniversary Award in Healthcare Engineering
    • The 1966 graduates in industrial engineering (IndE 6T6) are proud to support this scholarship to contribute to the development of industrial engineering expertise for the healthcare sector.
  2. Peri Family Graduate Scholarship in Healthcare Engineering
    • John Peri (IndE 8T4) and his family provided generous donations to the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering to establish two awards, one of which is to support graduate students conducting research in healthcare engineering.
  3. Stan Gasner Graduate Scholarship in Healthcare
    • Stan Gasner (IndE 6T4) and his wife, Diane, have long supported the Faculty and aspiring engineers through volunteerism, mentorship, event participation and generous contributions. Established in 2018, this scholarship recognizes and assists graduate students pursuing research in healthcare engineering.

Thank you to our generous supporters for encouraging advanced learning, discovery and innovation!
