“Stantec is dedicating scholarship resources to help unlock academic brilliance sitting in the minds of underrepresented communities. We see these scholarships as serving an important part in our broad and critical strategy to achieve racial equality. This equality is a target that is right; it is a target to which we must be dedicated to in order to achieve it in our lifetime,” said Adam Carnegie, Stantec Urban Planner and Senior Associate in the firm’s Community Development practice. “Stantec is committed to providing diverse and inclusive scholarships to help give all the communities we serve, and our firm, the benefit of these sharp minds.”

The company is proud to empower the next generation of industry leaders and provide people in historically underrepresented groups with this scholarship, which is a joint effort organized by both the organization’s Community Engagement and Diversity & Inclusion programs.
