A key mandate of the AEE Canada East is to give back to the energy engineering community by supporting students who have chosen to study for degrees/diplomas related to or in support of clean energy, energy efficiency, and climate change mitigation.

To date, the AEE Canada East chapter has established endowed scholarships at Carleton in Ottawa, and UNB in Fredericton.

Scholarship recipients for each award are included below.

University of New Brunswick (UNB)

The AEE Canada East founders scholarship at UNB is awarded to a student in either 3rd or 4th year studying in the J Herbert Smith Centre for Technology Management and Entrepreneurship. The recipient will be selected based on their innovation focus related to energy, resilience, or decarbonization.

What’s next for me?
We’ll see! Whatever it is, I hope to continue to find and live the adventure in every day;
prioritize environmental and social justice, and meet new, passionate people everywhere I go. The excitement I feel for a career in “green” engineering came from many years of discovery throughout university and I have many people to thank for the opportunities, including AEE – thank you!

This award demonstrated the commitment that Energy Engineers have towards our planet and for myself as a junior in the field I understand there’s a path that I can boldly walk on and a community that will support my vision of low carbon energy systems for non-developed countries as well.
