Faculty of Engineering and Computer Science

The Goldie and Joe Raymer Endowment

Applications are called for the Goldie and Joe Raymer Award from both undergraduate and graduate students in the Faculty of Engineering and Computer Science.

The Goldie and Joe Raymer Award was established with an endowment by the Raymer family to support exchange visits of students between the Faculty and Technion-Israel Institute of Technology. The Raymer Family has long-standing associations with both institutions, and believes that learning, scholarship, respect for diversity and leadership in promoting peace and understanding can be fostered through international exchanges.

The support will start in the winter term of the year 2001 for a Concordia student to visit Technion, and then will alternate each year between students of Technion visiting Concordia and vice versa, when merited. An amount of $6,250 will be made available annually to cover in part air travel, tuition, accommodation and living expenses.

Applications must be made by letter, accompanied by a CV, transcripts, a statement of purpose and other relevant documents. Candidates will be selected according to academic merit, extracurricular achievement and an ability to represent Concordia at Technion as a cultural ambassador.

Applications should be sent by mail or in person, no later than Friday, September 29, 2000, to: Dr. Osama Moselhi, Executive Advisor to the Dean, Graduate Programs and Research, Office of the Dean, Faculty of Engineering and Computer Science, 1455 de Maisonneuve Blvd. West, LB 1007-3, H3G 1M8.
