Engineering giant Hatch will be providing $250,000 over five years for a scholarship fund for graduate and undergrad students at Laurentian University’s Bharti School of Engineering in Sudbury.

With Hatch is marking its 30th anniversary in Sudbury, the firm said in a news release that this donation to Laurentian, along with providing summer employment opportunities, is part of their “commitment to the development of tomorrow’s leaders.”

The Bharti School offers programs in mining, chemical and mechanical engineering. 

“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 school, in a Jan.30 news release.

“At Hatch, we strive for real partnerships with our clients and with the communities in which we work,” added Bruce MacKay, Hatch’s regional managing director for Western North America.

“We’re excited to be able to give back to the Sudbury community while supporting the next generation of engineers.”
