Queen’s, UBC each receive $1M endowment from Teck to establish student scholarships


Queen’s University and the University of British Columbia both recently received $1M in endowments each from Teck Resources (Teck) to establish the Don Lindsay Teck Award in Mining Engineering. The award—which was established in recognition of former Teck CEO Don Lindsay’s contributions to the mining sector—will fund annual renewable scholarships for students pursuing mining studies. The endowments build upon longstanding partnerships between Teck and the mining schools at UBC and Queen’s. “The Don Lindsay Teck Award in Mining Engineering will shape the next generation of mining engineers,” said UBC Dean of the Faculty of Applied Science James Olson.
