Overview

Who doesn't like the idea of winning some scholarship money for your time at McMaster while competing in some fun challenges?! Complete various challenges in-person and or virtually between March 1st and April 10th. The more challenges you complete, the more 'tickets' you will have for the Scavenger Hunt draw. 

Who can participate?

The MacEng Applicant Scavenger Hunt is open to all applicants for Fall 2022 enrollment to the Faculty of Engineering undergraduate programs including iBioMed, Computer Science, Engineering 1, and BTech (not including DCP).

What can I win?

5 x $1000 CAD scavenger hunt scholarships are available.

Only 1 prize per scholarship draw is permitted. Amounts awarded to winning scavenger hunt draw participants are not transferable to other participants. Scholarship prizes are only redeemable if a participant receives an offer to a McMaster Faculty of Engineering program and successfully enrolls.
