Inspiring the Pursuit of Knowledge in the Engineering and Precast Concrete Industry

CPCI is proud to participate in and sponsor the Women in Engineering (VE) on June 20 and celebrate International Women in Engineering Day on June 23rd. CPCI and its members endorse gender diversity in all aspects of our institute and member manufacturing plants to recruit and retain more women.

The Sonia Saari Memorial Scholarship, a testament to Sonia Saari’s profound impact on the engineering profession and her unwavering support for the next generation of engineers and leaders in the Canadian precast concrete industry, is a prestigious opportunity. This scholarship, named in honour of Sonia Saari, is awarded annually to a student enrolled in graduate studies in the field of precast concrete-related research, design, and construction.

Under an agreement with Mitacs, CPCI is delighted to offer a substantial scholarship at $20,000 per year, renewable upon satisfactory approval for a second year, for a total of $40,000. The Sonia Saari Memorial Scholarship is available for graduate or postgraduate Engineering students in precast concrete-related research, design or construction.
