CSSE provides financial support to youth-oriented science and engineering projects, funded by member donations. CSSE encourages its members to identify and nominate groups that would benefit from financial support with such projects.
The following organizations have been supported by CSSE:
Youth Science Canada
Each year CSSE provides Senior and Junior Engineering Innovation Awards at the Canada-Wide Science Fair, a program of YSC.
Youth Science Canada has been engaging Canadian youth in scientific inquiry since 1962 and celebrated the fiftieth anniversary of its flagship program, the Canada-Wide Science Fair (CWSF), in May 2011. Read More
Saskatchewan Science Centre Summer Day Camp Program
Campers experience science themed activities, challenges and experiments, science demonstrations and presentations, award-winning exhibits, an IMAX film that might even be in 3D, and ample time to explore all three floors of interactive exhibits and displays. They’ll also meet new friends and create memories that will stick around for a lifetime. Read More
TRIUMF (Tri Universities Meson Production Facility) Science and Engineering Outreach Program
As a world-leading research laboratory, TRIUMF takes its commitment to the citizens of Canada seriously. A key component of that commitment is a formal education & outreach program with a mission of promoting science and research in the public arena. Read More
Alberta Science Literary Association
ASLA is a promoter of active life-long interest in science, technology, engineering and nature. With programs for children, educators and the general public ASLA “brings science to life” in Alberta communities. Read More
VICTA (University of Victoria) [Currently dormant]
VICTA (Vancouver Island Cosmic-ray Time-coincidence Array) a project associated with the University of Victoria, provides cosmic ray detectors and electronics to high school partners on Vancouver Island for use in their educational programs. The equipment provided allows high school students to detect cosmic ray showers, measure the lifetime and speed of muons, to perform a test of special relativity, and in general to develop an understanding of a radiation detector and how subatomic particles are detected.
University of Alberta Discover E
DiscoverE is a student-delivered initiative run out of the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Alberta, in Edmonton AB. We focus on fun, accessibility and mentorship to deliver programs about engineering, science and technology! Read More

John Evans, P.Eng was a Director and Vice-President of the Foundation, a committed supporter of women in engineering and a CEMF scholarship judge. His legacy included a donation for an award to be made to a young Canadian woman entering an accredited engineering program in Canada from high school and it is not based on academic achievement. This $5,000 award also includes a potential summer engineering work placement opportunity with Fortis Inc. at one of their Canadian utilities, after your second or third year of study. He was the president of the Canadian Society pf Senior Engineers at the time of his death.
