Eligibility criteria:

Are you a minority student who is continuing full time undergraduate studies entering your third or fourth year of an undergraduate program in Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics (a gender minority in a traditionally male/female dominated program - for example a young woman studying engineering or a young man in nursing) at an Alberta university, college, or technical institute?

  2. Your CV (Please note: a CV is curriculum vitae: "A special type of resume traditionally used within the academic community. Unlike a resume, a CV tends to be longer and more informational than promotional in tone".)
