The School for Resource and Environmental Studies (SRES) at Dalhousie University is pleased to announce the creation of a new scholarship for highly qualified students interested in the Master of Environmental Studies (MES) program. Eligible students would pursue research in one of the five topic areas described below and in more detail here: http://www.dal.ca/academics/programs/graduate/environmental-studies/funding-support/department-support/sres-research-legacy-scholarship.html
These scholarships are valued at $18,000 per year for two years and are unencumbered – recipients are not required to undertake any TA or RA work as a condition of taking up these scholarships.
Interested students should contact the SRES professor associated with the project(s) they are interested in as soon as possible, but ideally before November 15, 2015 (further enquiries after this date are welcome). Though five potential project topics are on offer, only TWO new scholarships will be funded to start in the Fall of 2016.
