The Lassonde Scholarship

At Lassonde we believe in the Renaissance Philosophy: educating engineers and scientists that have more than just technical skills, but passion, perspective and a creative spark, too.

The Lassonde Scholarship is one of the most generous awards available to students who demonstrate the traits of a future Renaissance Engineer or Renaissance Scientist. This is someone who exemplifies creativity, passion, ingenuity, rational thinking and confidence in their academic pursuits, extracurricular activities and personal interests.
