2021 Winners
Scholarship Winner
Nathan Archibald
"The thing that always amazes me about engineering is that there are no limits! If the technology for an idea that you have doesn't exist yet, then invent the technology yourself. Personally, my future goals are to revolutionize clean energy generation or develop new sustainable transportation technology."
Scholarship Winner
Andrew Martens
“Within the field of engineering I hope
to apply my knowledge to the field of agriculture
by making it more sustainable and eco-friendly for our future. My love for engineering stems from
a great push in my childhood to be creative
and inventive.”

All applicants must write a 700-word essay, detailing why you think you should receive this scholarship. We want to learn all about your academic achievements, your drive to succeed as an engineer, your passion for the field, your personal achievements, your educational expectations for the future and what you think the next ten years of your professional life will look like!
OptionalYour engineering innovation is something we crave to learn more about. Using our electric linear actuators and corresponding products as your basis, we want you to describe (or even better, design!) an inventive application. The more inventive and creative, the better! These don’t have to be monumental, ground-breaking technologies – they can be as simple as you like. Points are solely scored for creative-thinking and inventiveness.
Applicants must be enrolled for the September 2021 semester at a recognized Canadian or American post-secondary college or university. This must be a full-time engineering course.
Optional: Applicants can demonstrate their academic performance by submitting a copy of their high-school transcripts.
Please supply an image of yourself that may be featured on our website and social media.
If you have anything extra you would like to show or tell us about, feel free to include it in your submission!
You are not eligible if you have already received the award in a previous year.
