WEGP Graduate Scholarship Opportunities
May 5, 2007

The Watershed Ecosystems Graduate Program (WEGP) at Trent University is pleased to announce the availability of two scholarships: the French American Charitable Trust Graduate Scholarship for Ph.D. candidates; and the David & Joyce Woods Graduate Scholarship for master’s level candidates.

Established in 1994, The French American Charitable Trust Graduate Scholarship is an open scholarship available to Ph.D. candidates in the WEGS program through the generosity of The French American Charitable Trust.

In September 2007 four awards of $2,500 will be awarded to Ph.D. level graduate students from the Watershed Ecosystems program.

The purpose of the award is to recognize a high level of scholarship and original thought. The nature of the application is intended to reflect the innovation and original thinking requisite in a Ph.D. candidate. Applicants are expected to submit a written work of scientific interest and enlightenment.

The David & Joyce Woods Graduate Scholarship, which was established in 1990, has enough funds available to offer four awards of $2,000 for September 2007.

David & Joyce Woods were both generous contributors to a variety of community organizations. Mr. Woods was a dedicated supporter of Trent, and from 1975-1980 was chairman of the Board of Governors. Mrs. Woods supported environmental groups as diverse as the Audubon Society, World Wildlife Federation, and Greenpeace

This scholarship is open to students who have attained a first class average (80%) on their first full credit graduate course(s) in the Watershed Ecosystems Master of Science graduate program at Trent University.

Applications for both scholarships will be accepted by the Watershed Ecosystems Graduate Program on or before June 30, 2007. Successful applicants will receive notification during the first weeks of August.

For further information regarding eligibility, the application process, evaluation criteria and the adjudication process, please contact Linda Cardwell in the Watershed Ecosystems Graduate Office at 748-1011 ext. 7360 or via email.
