DPES Excellence and Leadership Awards
This award aims to recognize undergraduate students that demonstrate both academic excellence and leadership within the Department of Physical & Environmental Sciences. The DPES Teaching and Curriculum Committee will select three full time undergraduate students per year (one from each of our three disciplines) in their third or fourth year studying in a major or specialist program in: Chemistry, Environmental Sciences/Studies, and Physics/Astrophysics. The selected students must have distinguished themselves both academically and for their leadership and contributions to the DPES community through their participation in student organizations (e.g., EPSA, Chemistry Society, Chem-Aid Centre, Physics-Aid Centre, etc..) or other volunteer work related to DPES!
The selection process will take place during the third week of May. Once the DPES Teaching and Curriculum Committee identifies a pool of potential recipients based on their academic performance, evidence for their leadership and contributions to the DPES community will be requested through reference letters. Each award is valued at $250 and the recipients will be honored at the annual DPES end of term function. This award is sponsored by our TRACES Centre and Chemical Stores facility.
