March 21, 2022
The IBI Group has announced a new $5,000 scholarship open to Carleton University students who self-identify as Black and are interested in infrastructure, buildings, and intelligence.
The Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging (DIB) Scholarship is for students pursuing a bachelor’s or master’s degree with a STEAM major (science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics).
The deadline to apply is April 29. The application link can be found here.
Preference will be given to students enrolled in IBI’s core sectors — infrastructure, buildings, and intelligence. They must also demonstrate commitment to community leadership in advancing social equity or outstanding contributions to the Black community.

Students must be enrolled at Carleton in the 2022-23 academic year. The funds will be distributed in Summer 2022.
IBI Group is a global architecture, engineering, planning, and technology company.
“This scholarship is one of many IBI Group programs aimed at increasing internal gender representation and diversity and in turn fostering an environment where everyone is encouraged to be themselves and achieve a sense of belonging,” according to the company website.
“The IBI Group wants to reward Black students for their scholastic achievements, while introducing them to the vast opportunities at IBI Group upon graduation,” it says.
“IBI Group will consider candidates using objective criteria, having due regard for the benefits of diversity and the needs of the business.”
