CDA accepting applications for scholarships

Canadian Dam Association

The Canadian Dam Association’s annual Gary Salmon Memorial Scholarship program is accepting applications for 2016.

Applications are due May 15, 2016.

The top-ranked applicant will receive a C$5,000 scholarship and the runner-up will receive the CDA Research Scholarship in the amount of $2,500.

Established in 2009 in honor of the late Gary Salmon, P. Eng., the program awards one scholarship each to two full-time postgraduate students attending a Canadian university or an accredited college, which has a program of study that focuses on either dam safety or dam management.

The scholarships are awarded primarily on the basis of academic excellence and the relevance of the applicant’s research project to the stated objective, as well as leadership and community involvement.

Candidates must submit an application and the following information:

  • A 500-word synopsis of their proposed research project;
  • Official course transcripts;
  • A statement from the program’s director endorsing the applicant; and
  • Two letters of reference.
