In this special spring issue, Streng.th invites you to learn more about the 2016 recipients of the Fellowship for Excellence in Graduate Studies and the three Student Awards of Merit.

The recipients of these awards received them during the Soirée de l’excellence en génie on April 18 at the Palais des congrès de Montréal, in conjunction with the OIQ’s 2016 Annual Conference.
During the gala event, the Fellowship for Excellence in Graduate Studies was presented by Gestion Férique, whereas the first, second and third Student Awards of Merit were presented by the Ordre des ingénieurs du Québec, TD Insurance Meloche Monnex, and National Bank, respectively.
 
Through the three Student Awards of Merit and the Fellowship for Excellence in Graduate Studies, a total of $23,000 is awarded to students. While the Student Awards of Merit are presented to three undergraduate students who are members of the OIQ’s Student Section, the Fellowship for Excellence in Graduate Studies is presented to a graduate student who is a member of the OIQ’s Student Section or a full-time student member of the OIQ.
