2014 Geoscience BC Scholarship Awards

 Geoscience BC is pleased to announce that up to ten scholarships of $5000.00 CAD each will be awarded in May 2014. Students who have registered and started in a Masters (MSc) or Doctorate (PhD) program in earth science or geoscience and working on a British Columbia-based mineral, oil and gas, coal or geothermal exploration and/or development thesis topic 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 investment to BC, the student's interest in exploration and development and his or her academic qualifications.

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

The application deadline is April 30, 2014.
