:: Canadian Engineering Memorial Foundation and Inco Limited Announce the New Inco Limited Masters Scholarship in Engineering

The Board of Directors of the Canadian Engineering Memorial Foundation ("CEMF") is pleased to announce the funding of a new graduate engineering scholarship. This new scholarship is being sponsored by Inco Limited and will be known as the Inco Limited Masters Scholarship in Engineering for women.

Inco Limited, an original founding supporter of the Foundation, welcomes the opportunity to fund this new scholarship and continue its alliance with CEMF. "We're hopeful that this new scholarship will encourage more women to pursue their studies in engineering," said Scott Hand, Chairman and CEO of Inco Limited. "At Inco we're focused on trying to improve the gender diversity of our workforce, and we're very eager to see more women graduates who want to make careers in engineering."

This new scholarship will be available for applicants beginning in the Fall of 2005, with the first scholarship being awarded in the Spring of 2006 at the Annual CEMF Scholarship Awards Luncheon which presently takes place at the Canadian Council of Professional Engineer's annual meeting.

CEMF is very proud of this renewed partnership with Inco Limited and is delighted that they will be able to add one new scholarship to the six scholarships that they currently award each year. This scholarship will help encourage women to continue their studies in engineering, "we have a long way to go since women make up only 10% of the 160,000 licensed engineers in Canada", says Dr. Suzelle Barrington, CEMF's President.

The CEMF is committed to creating a world where engineering meets the needs and challenges of society by engaging the skills and talents of both women and men alike. To that end, CEMF is dedicated to attract women to the engineering profession so they may contribute in a truly inclusive manner. In so doing, they also honour the memory of the 14 women from Ecole Polytechnique, Montreal, whose contributions to Canada ended on December 6, 1989. CEMF is a Registered Canadian Charitable Foundation. For more information on the CEMF visit www.cemf.ca
