Women seeking to combine engineering and business degrees will receive support from a $5-million investment to Western from global auto parts giant, Linamar Corp., and the families that founded and operate it.

The Linamar Scholarship for Women in Engineering and Business will offer 10 scholarships to female students each year in Western’s Engineering and Business Dual-Degree Program.

The game-changing gift came from Linamar CEO Linda Hasenfratz, EMBA ’97, her husband Ed Newton, and Linamar founder Frank Hasenfratz. It was announced during a ceremony at Ivey on September 27.
