The Lassonde Scholarship

At Lassonde we believe in the Renaissance philosophy of developing engineers and scientists that are more than just technical skills. We want to reward our best and brightest students who are able to achieve excellence in both the academic and the co-curricular realms.

The Lassonde Scholarship is one of the most generous awards available to students who can demonstrate the traits of a future “Renaissance Engineer” or “Renaissance Scientist” – creativity, passion, ingenuity, rational thinking and confidence – in all aspects of their life, including academic pursuits, extracurricular activities and their own interests. Applications for this prestigious scholarship are now open.
