Crozier is pleased to announce its inaugural fund of $25,000 as a gift to McMaster University. The C.F. Crozier & Associates Inc. Bursary is valued at $5,000 and will be awarded annually over the next five years to provide financial support to eligible students enrolled in Civil, Mechanical, or Electrical & Computer Engineering programs.
“We have a long-standing relationship with McMaster and felt it most appropriate to support students at an institution that shares similar values as our firm,” said Chris Crozier, founder and CEO, C.F. Crozier & Associates Inc. “The exceptional Engineering & Management Program at McMaster University provided me with the foundation I needed to pursue my career in engineering and business, and I’m forever grateful. It’s time to give back and I’m excited to award the annual bursary to support students who will transform the future of engineering.”
Chris was named one of McMaster’s Faculty of Engineering’s Top 150 Alumni in 2017 and was honoured to join the Dean’s Advisory Board. Alongside fellow alumnus, Chris assists in identifying strategic partnerships within specific industries, anticipating future direction in government policy, and forecasting the potential impact of new technologies on education and research within the school’s Faculty of Engineering.
Responding to the gift, Dean of Engineering and Professor, Ishwar K. Puri wrote, “Despite the pandemic, our faculty, staff and students continue to pursue their goals and do outstanding work and our friends like [Crozier], continue to make that work possible. [This] meaningful contribution is directly impacting the Faculty’s mission to inspire and educate citizen scholars who will transform the world.”
Crozier’s relationships with universities and colleges have favoured well for the company, recently announcing a new president, Nick Mocan, who originally joined Crozier as an engineering student.
“We’ve always believed in our peers, our community, and the younger generation to help us the lead the way,” Chris added. “Everyone deserves a chance and we’re honoured to be able to assist in any way we can.”
