The Foundation is a proud partner of the Excellence in Science segment of the Hats Off to You! contest.


Registration for the Hats Off to You! and Excellence in Science contests is open from January 14 to March 8, 2019.
The Hats Off to You! contest and its Excellence in Science segment showcase the determination and work of women enrolled in a vocational training or technical training program, or a bachelor’s program in science or technology that leads to a career in a traditionally male-dominated occupation.
The contest recognizes women who choose a traditionally male-dominated occupation, rewards their hard work, promotes the academic success of women within a predominantly male group and provides role models for women who wish to venture off the beaten track. The prizes awarded to the winners are worth between $2 000 and $5 000, and amount to nearly $160 000.
New this year, the Fondation de l’Ordre des ingénieurs du Québec (FOIQ) awards two cash prizes of $2000 each to two students whose engagement and concrete actions encourage other women to pursue a career in engineering.
In addition to answers to the general questions, the candidate’s application package must include the answer to the following question (a maximum of one page):
As an aspiring engineer, what steps are you currently taking or have you taken in the past to encourage other young women to pursue a career in engineering?
