Award type: 
Award description: 

An award, valued up to $1,000, is presented annually to a female student entering Year Four of an Honours program in which women are currently underrepresented. Preference will be given to students in the Faculty of Science, studying Physics and/or Chemistry.  Additional programs include most Engineering programs, most Mathematics programs, and Economics, but are subject to change as the student population changes.  Eligibility will be based on academic standing and demonstration of a sincere interest in and commitment to the area of study in which the student is enrolled. Interested third-year female students should apply by March 15.  This fund is made possible by donations from friends and colleagues of Dr. Brisbin in recognition of her contributions as a former Chemistry professor and an Honorary Member of the University.
