Established by Dr. Stacey Scott, Professor of Computer Science, in loving memory of her parents Bill and Sandy Scott, who always supported her pursuit of higher education. This scholarship recognizes the role that education plays in creating opportunities for future success in STEM, especially among traditionally under-represented communities. By creating this scholarship, Dr. Scott and her family support the University’s commitment to work towards reconciliation with Indigenous (First Nations, Inuit and Métis) peoples, communities, and lands. The family's intent is to provide a meaningful contribution to truth & reconciliation by supporting greater inclusion of Indigenous (First Nations, Inuit and Métis) students within B.Comp. programs and promoting diversity within the College of Engineering and Physical Sciences. Students should complete the online Financial Need Assessment Form for Entrance Awards (E.N.A.F.) as soon as they receive their Acknowledgement Package from Admission Services (this will come automatically after an application for admissions has been submitted by the student) or by April 15 and email a statement to awards@uougelph.ca identifying as a Black, Indigenous (First Nations, Inuit, and Métis) or racialized person. Selection will be based on financial need.

Students who are Black, Indigenous (First Nations, Inuit, and Métis) or racialized persons entering any degree program offered by the College of Engineering and Physical Sciences with demonstrated financial need. Preference will be given in the following order: i) Indigenous (First Nation, Inuit or Métis) students entering any major of the B.Comp. program offered by the School of Computer Science ii) Indigenous (First Nation, Inuit or Métis) students entering any program offered by the College of Engineering and Physical Sciences.
