Geoscience Award Up For Grabs

The Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada and the Geological Association of Canada have issued an open call for applicants for the Mary-Claire Ward Geoscience Award.

The award, which is worth $3,000, is given annually to a graduate student at a Canadian university whose thesis incorporates geoscience mapping as a significant component.

The award commemorates Mary-Claire Ward, who worked hard to advance geoscience mapping in Canada. Ward died in 2004. The deadline for applications is Dec. 15, and the selection committee will announce the name of the winner on Feb. 1, 2010.

The presentation of the award will be made either at the Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada’s annual convention in Toronto (March 7-10) or at the Geological Association of Canada’s annual meeting in Calgary (May 10-14), depending on the preference of the winning student. Travel and accommodation expenses will be covered either by the PDAC or by the GAC. Applications and full details about the award are available at or .
