2011 Geoscience BC Scholarship Awards

 Geoscience BC is pleased to announce that ten scholarships in the amount of $5000.00(CAD) each will be awarded once again in May 2011. Students registered in a Masters (MSc) or Doctorate (PhD) program in earth science or geoscience, and working on a mineral or energy exploration and/or development thesis topic in British Columbia are eligible and encouraged to apply.

The scholarships will be awarded to students based on their project's technical merit, the ability of the project to attract mineral and oil and gas investment to BC, the student's interest in exploration, and the academic qualifications of the student.

Masters students may receive the Geoscience BC scholarship only once during their program. Successful PhD students may reapply for a second year of funding ($5000.00 CAD) provided they demonstrate that they have made significant progress in their studies.

The application deadline is April 29, 2011.
