Leonard S. (Tony) Mandamin Award
Hydro One is committed to supporting First Nations, Métis and Inuit students who are interested in pursuing careers within the electricity sector. In 2011, Hydro One established the First Nations, Métis and Inuit Scholarship which was renamed the Leonard S. (Tony) Mandamin Award in 2014. The award is granted annually to students studying in the energy industry related disciplines at a recognized university or community college. In addition to a cash award, recipients will be offered a paid work term/summer position with Hydro One. To leverage additional support, Hydro One has partnered with Indspire who are now responsible for the distribution of the Hydro One Leonard S. (Tony) Mandamin Indigenous Awards.
The William Peyton Hubbard Memorial Award
William Peyton Hubbard was instrumental in the development and public control of hydroelectric power in Ontario. The son of a freed slave from Virginia, he was Toronto's first black Alderman, Controller and Acting Mayor in the early part of the 20th century. If it were not for his unwavering commitment, Hydro One might not exist today. In his honour, Hydro One sponsors four annual awards for outstanding black undergraduate students attending an Ontario college or university. Students who have completed at least one year in one of the following areas are invited to apply: Electrical, Mechanical, Civil or Environmental Engineering/Technology, Computer Science, Forestry, Business or Information Technology. In addition to a cash award, recipients will be offered a paid work term/summer position with Hydro One.
Hydro One Women in Engineering Award
Hydro One has a history of supporting women in developing satisfying professional careers for mutual benefit. Part of this support has been community engagement through avenues such as the College Consortium and the Women in Engineering, University Partnership. 2014 marked ten years of Hydro One's involvement in Go Eng Girl, a program aimed at increasing the level of interest of girls in STEM subjects. This ten year anniversary also marked the establishment of the Hydro One Women in Engineering Award, an extension of Hydro One's tangible support for young women wishing to embark on a career in Engineering. The Go Eng Girl program is also evidence of Hydro One's visible support for women in general, as part of Hydro One's overall Diversity & Inclusion Program. In addition to a cash award, recipients will be offered a paid work term/summer position with Hydro One.
