As a technical company that has great need for skilled engineers, we are committed to building the global competitiveness of the University of Guelph’s Engineering program. Each year, ten engineering students receive scholarships to help them through their studies. We do not view these scholarships as a simple corporate donation, but as an investment in the future potential of these students who may one day become a part of the innovative team at Linamar.
