Laricina Energy Ltd. is furthering its support to the University of Calgary’s Schulich School of Engineering with a contribution of nearly $1 million to the Engineering Leaders Campaign.
The support from both the company and personally from alumnus Glen Schmidt, Laricina President and CEO supports undergraduate student awards, research, and much-needed new space.
The Company has established a five-year scholarship program, called the Laricina Energy Scholarships in Engineering. The scholarships provide financial assistance based on academic merit to continuing undergraduate students studying mechanical, chemical, or oil and gas engineering. Four scholarships of $3,000 each are awarded annually.
A portion of the funds have been earmarked to support a chemical and petroleum engineering graduate student space where future innovators can exchange exciting new ideas. President and CEO Glen Schmidt's personal donation will help establish a much-needed meeting space in the new engineering building. The investment in the building expansion is helping to bring the Schulich School of Engineering up to its full potential.
With this funding contribution, Laricina will also be advancing research as it supports the Canada Research Chair in Energy and Imaging at the Schulich School of Engineering.
