The Talbot Memorial Fund was established by the family of Richard Talbot, P.Eng., to honour his contribution to Engineering on Vancouver Island. The award will be presented to two either 3rd or 4th year University of Victoria Engineering students, based on a combination of factors including Community Activities, Academic Achievement, and student statement on how Engineering impacts society. A short virtual ceremony will take place to present two recipients with an award of $1,000 each. All proceeds will be donated to Talbot funds.
