John Evans, P.Eng was a Director and Vice-President of the Foundation, a committed supporter of women in engineering and a CEMF scholarship judge. His legacy included a donation for an award to be made to a young Canadian woman entering an accredited engineering program in Canada from high school and it is not based on academic achievement. This $5,000 award also includes a potential summer engineering work placement opportunity with Fortis Inc. at one of their Canadian utilities, after your second or third year of study.
