Annually, an intern from each degree program is recognized for their outstanding achievements and presented with a Merit Award. Not only do winners receive a monetary prize and a silver plaque, but this prestigious award is also an excellent addition to any resume.
Nominations must be submitted by employers to the Engineering Internship Office by June 30th and are kept completely confidential. For a student to be eligible, they must be completing their internship now, be returning to university for the fall term and must have passed and handed in all reports on time. Once the eligibility of the intern is verified, those eligible will be contacted and asked to submit a letter explaining why they deserve to win a Merit Award. Finally, the Advisory Council will review nominations and select the winners.
- The nomination must be submitted by the supervisor.
- Candidates will be judged on the professionalism of their reports, the content of performance evaluations by the supervisor, the strength of the supervisor's recommendation, having met all the required deadlines, and the meaningfulness of the nominee's letter explaining why they deserve the nomination.
- If no candidates in a degree program are deemed to be deserving, there will be no award given.
Mike Ward Prize
This award is the Engineering Internship Program's premier award. A recipient will be selected amongst the Merit Award winners. The winning student will be the intern who best demonstrates the overall qualities and capabilities of a Schulich engineer. The winning intern will receive a monetary prize in recognition of Michael Allan Ward and his contribution to the establishment of the Engineering Internship Program, as well as a gold plaque.
To select the recipient of the Mike Ward Prize, the Internship Awards Committee will interview the Merit Award winners from each degree program. At the option of the committee, interns may be asked to participate in an interview, provide a portfolio of their work, or deliver a short presentation on their internship experience related to the characteristics of a Schulich Engineer.
- Must have been awarded a Merit Award for the same year.
