2018 Fessenden-Trott Scholarship

Sponsor: Fessenden-Trott Scholarship Committee

Deadline: Competition is now closed

Objective: Scholarships, to be known as Fessenden-Trott scholarships, have been established in memory of the late Professor Reginald Aubrey Fessenden and the late Helen May Fessenden (née Trott). Professor Fessenden was born in Canada in 1866. He came to Bermuda as a young man and was Headmaster of the Whitney Institute for approximately two years. He married Helen May Trott of Bermuda in 1890. During a distinguished career in Canadian and American universities, which included appointments as Professor of Electrical Engineering at Purdue University and at Western University of Pennsylvania (now the University of Pittsburgh) Professor Fessenden became a renowned inventor of electrical and radio equipment and was a pioneer of radio broadcasting. He developed an entirely new system of wireless transmission distinct from and based on a different principle from that of Marconi and Lodge and he first tested the wireless telephone at Cobbs Island, Maryland, in 1900. Six years later he effected the first two-way trans-Atlantic wireless telegraphic service between Brant Rock, Massachussetts, and Machrihanish, Scotland. Professor Fessenden also invented the oscillator, the fathometer (also known as the sonic depth finder), the wireless compass and other submarine signaling devices. He was honoured by the Institute of Radio Engineers in 1921 and received the John Smith medal for his invention in “Continuous Wave Telegraphy and Telephony” in 1922, followed by the Scientific American Medal for his numerous inventions relating to safety at sea.

The Professor’s wife, Helen May Fessenden, was a daughter of the late Thaddeus and Louisa Trott of “Rockmore”, Smith’s Parish, Bermuda. When the Professor’s health began to fail, he and his wife returned to Bermuda and resided there from 1928 until he died in 1932. Mrs. Fessenden remained in Bermuda until she died in 1941 and the Fessenden Trust was established by her will. Each year, these scholarships are offered to a different region of Canada.

In 2018, nominations will be accepted from universities in the Western provinces.
