MONTREAL, Nov. 29, 2023 /CNW/ - Maud Cohen, President of Polytechnique Montréal, and Michèle Prévost, Chair of the Order of the White Rose Selection Jury and Full Professor, invite the media to attend the 9th Edition of the Order of the White Rose Scholarship Ceremony, which will take place on December 4, 2023, at 11 a.m., in the Galerie Rolland, on the 6th floor of Polytechnique's main building.
A $50,000 scholarship will be awarded to an outstanding female Canadian engineering student who hopes to pursue graduate studies at the university of her choice, in Canada or elsewhere in the world.
At Polytechnique, white roses have become a symbol of commemoration of the December 6, 1989 anti-feminist attack that claimed the lives of 14 women and injured several others. Established in 2014, the Order of the White Rose is a forward-looking initiative that aims to promote peace and healing in the wake of this tragic event.
