Dean Henry Gunning Entrance Award in Engineering

Awards totalling $2,600 have been made available through an endowment established by the Graduating Engineering Class of 1958 in memory of their Dean, Henry C. Gunning (1901-1991), for outstanding domestic undergraduate students entering the Bachelor of Applied Science program directly from high school. In addition to academic merit, candidates must have demonstrated leadership through participation in extra-curricular or volunteer activities such as professional, school, social and community organizations or athletics. Dr. Gunning (B.A.Sc. 1923, M.Sc. 1926, Ph.D.) served as Head of the Department of Geology and Geography (1949-1959) and Dean of the Faculty of Applied Science (1954-1959). He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada in 1935 and was awarded an honorary Doctor of Science degree from UBC in 1967. Dean Gunning connected with, engaged and taught his students in a positive and impactful way and embodied the phrase "a scholar and a gentleman". The awards are made on the recommendation of the Faculty of Applied Science.
