scholastic honours, demonstrated initiative in the chosen field, and has shown interest in student affairs, particularly in a Student Branch of the IEEE under the geographic area of responsibility of the Vancouver Section.
Thurb Cushing Scholarship ($500 cash award):
The Vancouver Section, in memory of deceased outstanding individuals of the Section, offers this award to students formally enrolled in electrical and/or electronics engineering related studies who have demonstrated high scholastic attainment and have shown an interest in student affairs.
