Applications are currently open for the Elizabeth Henry Scholarship for Communities and Environmental Health through the Fraser Basin Council.
This $2000 award supports graduate students working on research projects in partnership with British Columbian communities that are addressing environmental health issues and promoting environmental sustainability through cooperative community initiatives. The goal of these projects should be to support indigenous and non-indigenous communities in their efforts to improve air quality, environmental health or environmental sustainability in BC.
- The applicant must be a full-time graduate student for at least one semester before being awarded the scholarship.
- The student’s area of study and proposed research project must be aimed at advancing air quality, environmental health or environmental sustainability through active leadership and participation in a community initiative based in British Columbia.
- The proposed research project must demonstrate strong relevance for and buy-in from the community. Preference will be given to projects in which the researcher will be working in close collaboration with a number of community members in carrying out the project.
