James R. Pearcey Award for Entrepreneurship

The James R. Pearcey Award for Entrepreneurship celebrates entrepreneurial spirit.

It was established by Wade. K. Dawe (B. Comm.’92) in memory of James R. Pearcey, a civil engineering graduate and former president of his 1993 class at Memorial.

The recipient of this award, which is normally valued at $10,000, will be an undergraduate student in the Faculty of Business Administration in any academic year, in clear academic standing (though academic performance may be considered) and who shows clear evidence of a significant propensity toward entrepreneurial activities and study.

Applications may include an essay, business plan or other materials that the applicant feels will demonstrate their entrepreneurial nature. Supporting documentation such as letters of reference, a resume or curriculum vitae may also be included.

The recipient will be selected by a committee comprised of representatives from both the Engineering and Business faculties.
