A total of 30 students from universities across Canada were presented with the scholarships by Governor General Roméo LeBlanc at a ceremony held at Rideau Hall. The scholarships were established in 1991 and 1992 to foster a higher awareness in environmental engineering and sciences, as well as encouraging some of Canada's brightest future scientists to pursue studies and careers in those fields.
The awards, each worth $1,500, were established under the Canada Scholarships program of Industry Canada and are sponsored by DuPont Canada.
Ricci is the author of a sensational trilogy: Lives of the Saints (1990), In a Glass House (1993), and Where She Has Gone (1997). Published in nine countries and translated into seven languages, Lives of the Saints won the Governor General's Award, the F. G. Bressani Prize, and the Smithbooks-Books First Novel Award in Canada. In England, Ricci's work was also awarded the Betty Trask Award and the Winifred Holtby Prize. Reviewing Where She Has Gone in Quill & Quire, Stephen Smith describes the work as "a magnificent novel in its own right, beautifully balanced, expertly paced, and executed in a prose that's so sure, so smooth in its operations, so expressive, that it might be said to hum with a natural life."
Ricci's reading is sponsored by the St. Jerome's English Department and the Canada Council.

In addition to featuring the research at Waterloo on fractal and wavelet approximation methods, the WFCP website includes a "Bragzone", in which fractal researchers around the world have been comparing various fractal compression algorithms, and a "Fractals Repository" of current research papers from sites worldwide. These facilities were created by John Kominek, a former graduate student in computer science who also worked as a researcher in the fractals project.
