About the Donor

A great entrepreneur, James A. Rice founded James A. Rice Engineering and General Contractors and was responsible for many prominent commercial and industrial developments in the Greater Toronto Area, as well as several notable government projects.

The fund will provide an annual bursary of $750 to a student in the Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science with a demonstrated financial need.

Jim's legacy will help students become the engineers, entrepreneurs, community builders and industry leaders of tomorrow.
