Iron Ring Endowment Funds
In 1999, the Wardens of Camp 15 Waterloo, with the assistance of the Office of the Dean of Engineering, established the University of Waterloo Iron Ring Endowment Fund. The purpose of the fund is for the advancement of engineering education at the University of Waterloo.
It is the intent of the Camp Wardens to make a contribution to the University of Waterloo Iron Ring Endowment Fund from any financial proceeds of annual operations of the Camp. The initial goal was to endow an annual engineering post-graduate scholarship, first achieved in 2007. The Camp has donated each year since 1999 and continues to do so to enable additional scholarship endowments.
The University of Waterloo administers the Fund in accordance with the Agreement between the Camp and the University. The Agreement stipulates that the Dean of Engineering has signing authority. Annual meetings are held with the Dean to determine how to best use the proceeds of the Fund in the spirit of the advancement of engineering education at the University of Waterloo.
In August 2015, the Wardens of Camp 15, with the assistance of the Office of Development and Alumni Relations of Conestoga College, established the Camp 15 Engineering Degree Scholarship as an annual and endowed award. The award was created by camp 15 Waterloo to recognize and encourage academic excellence in a senior engineering student in an accredited program at Conestoga College.
Similar to the Fund at UW, Conestoga College administers the fund in accordance with the Agreement between the Camp and the College. The recipient of the award is selected by the Financial Aid and Student Awards Office and confirmed by the Programs’ staff.
