About the Scholarship:

The University of Waterloo is a public research institution that was founded in 1957 and has been conducting research ever since. Waterloo was one of the first institutions in the world to provide undergraduate students with access to cutting-edge computers when it opened its doors in the early 1960s. The University of Waterloo offers more than 100 undergraduate degrees as well as 190 graduate degree programs. In addition, the University has six faculties and twelve faculty-based schools that are responsible for administering the academic programs. The University, which is located in the center of Canada’s technology sector, provides an excellent platform for graduates to further their work-based learning experiences. Furthermore, this university was one of the first to adopt the concept of the ‘co-op’ or co-operative program outside of the engineering field. Cooperative education programs blend classroom instruction with hands-on training techniques. The University of Waterloo’s main campus is located in Ontario and encompasses approximately 1000 acres of land. There are three satellite campuses in Canada and four affiliated university colleges, namely Conrad Grebal University College, Renison University College, St. Jerome’s University, and St. Paul’s University College, which are all owned by the university. According to a national study of 2400 students conducted by Maclean magazine, the University of Waterloo ranked first in Canada for career preparation. It currently has 31,380 undergraduate and 5,290 graduate students, with 20 percent of undergraduate and 40 percent of graduate students being international students. Every year, the University welcomes students from more than 120 different nations. To achieve excellence and equity in education, the University actively supports student diversity as well as gender equality among its student body. Waterloo University, which has 48 percent of undergraduate female students and 44 percent of graduate female students, is committed to equal opportunity for all students, regardless of gender or sexual orientation. Approximately 2,00,000 persons have graduated from the University of Waterloo since the institution’s founding in 1957, and alumni may be found in 152 countries throughout the globe. Graduates of the University of Waterloo have risen to prominence in a variety of professions and have also received numerous prizes, including the Nobel Prize. Robert Mundell was awarded the Nobel Prize in Economics in 1999 for his contributions to the study of monetary dynamics and the determination of optimal currency zones. Donna Strickland, a professor at the University of Waterloo, was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2018 for her contributions in laser physics.
