Scholarship Awards

  • Two scholarships valued at $5,000 each.
  • One scholarship, the Mike Macfarlane Memorial Scholarship, valued at $7,000. The Mike Macfarlane Memorial Scholarship was established in memory of Mike Macfarlane, the former Director of the Land Remediation Section of the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change Strategy and is awarded for outstanding innovative and forward-thinking research relevant to contaminated sites.

Eligibility Criteria

  1. Applicant must be enrolled in and have started a science or engineering program leading to a post graduate project or thesis.

  3. Applicant must be in the first or second year of their graduate degree and describe their research project in enough detail to determine its merits for scholarship award. Scholarships will be preferentially awarded to students beginning their work, not completing it.
