The Gilbert Monture Aboriginal Engineering Student Bursary is supported through a gift from the family of Gilbert Monture (Sci ’21), the first Aboriginal Canadian to graduate from Queen’s Faculty of Applied Science. This award, administered by the Enrichment Studies Unit (ESU) and Aboriginal Access to Engineering (AAE), provides financial support for Aboriginal students wishing to attend Enrichment Mini-Course (EMC) Programs or the Queen’s Summer Engineering Academy (QSEA) Program. Bursaries cover the cost of the program registration, but do not include any funding for travel, personal expenses or other unrelated costs. For the EMC Program, only Engineering-related EMC courses are eligible for this award.
