FAQs

Who is evaluating the nominations?

An awards selection committee has been established to evaluate the nomination forms. The awards selection committee comprises of individuals from the PEY Co-op Office, Faculty, Staff and the Engineering Society.

Can I submit multiple nominations for the same award?

Yes! All nominations will be considered by our awards selection committee, but only successful nominations will receive awards.

I’m currently working at my PEY Co-op position, and it’s been an amazing experience so far. Can I nominate my employer for an award?

We’re so happy that your PEY Co-op experience is going well! The focus of this year’s awards program is to recognize companies who employed our last cohort of PEY Co-op students (i.e., completed their PEY Co-op positions in 2018 and are currently in school finishing their degrees). Please do keep your employer in mind for future recognition opportunities.

How will I know if my nomination was successful?
