TORONTO – SEPTEMBER 24, 2018 – Baylis Medical is partnering with the University of Waterloo Engineering program to establish the Gloria Baylis Entrance Award, in support of the learning and development of new engineering students.

Named after the company’s founder, the annual scholarship will offer financial assistance to a Year One engineering student on the basis of academic excellence and a demonstrated interest in entrepreneurship.

Baylis is also renewing its support of the Baylis Medical Capstone Design Award, given annually to students who demonstrate a biomedical focus in their senior year capstone project proposal.

“Baylis is proud to continue partnering with the University of Waterloo to further the development of engineers of the future,” said Kris Shah, President of Baylis and University of Waterloo alumnus. “We hope to inspire students to make an impact on their field of study and, by extension, the lives of people around the world.”

In addition, Baylis has invested in the university’s new Engineering 7 facility, opening this fall. The facility will feature the Baylis Medical Student Garage, which will provide biomedical engineering students a dedicated space to work on their senior year projects.
