Hatch donates $250,000 in scholarships to Laurentian University

Sudbury, Canada—Hatch announced yesterday a $250,000 commitment to Laurentian University. The donation will provide a scholarship fund for undergraduate and graduate students enrolled at the University’s Bharti School of Engineering.

This year, Hatch is celebrating its 30th anniversary in Sudbury. This latest partnership with Laurentian University is part of Hatch’s commitment to giving back to the communities in which we work, and to educating the next generation of engineers and innovators who are committed to creating positive change. As part of Hatch’s ongoing commitment to the development of tomorrow’s leaders, we award more than $2 million in scholarships annually, and welcome more than 785 participants to our global student and new graduate program.

“At Hatch, we strive for real partnerships with our clients and with the communities in which we work. We’re excited to be able to give back to the Sudbury community who have been supportive of us for the past 30 years,” said Bruce MacKay, Hatch Regional Managing Director, Western North America.

Hatch first opened the doors of its Sudbury office 30 years ago this year. Since then we have been proud to work on some of the region’s largest projects, including Nickel Rim South, Onaping Depth, and the Process Gas Project for Glencore and the Copper Cliff Mine, several SO2 abatement projects, and furnace upgrades and rebuilds for Vale, among many others. Our office is currently home to more than 150 experts engaged on industry-leading modernization programs based not only in Sudbury but across the world.

With accredited programs in Mining, Chemical and Mechanical Engineering, the Bharti School of Engineering is recognized as a top producer of engineering talent in Canada as well as a global leader in mining research and education. Collaborations with local, provincial, national and international partners and industry leaders enhance the student experience and create opportunities for mutual benefit.

“We are so thankful that Hatch has taken this approach to student support, giving our engineering students an excellent opportunity to hone their leadership capabilities and focus in on their career interests,” said Markus Timusk, Director of the Bharti School of Engineering at Laurentian University.
