SRES Promise Scholars Legacy Bursary

The Promise Scholars program aligns with Dalhousie’s commitment to admit, engage, support and graduate a diverse student body, with attention to enhancing access and success of historically underrepresented students.

The SRES Promise Scholars Legacy program has been established to support incoming Indigenous or Black/African-Canadian students entering either of our School’s two programs, the Master of Environmental Studies (MES, thesis-based) or the Master of Resource and Environmental Management (MREM, course-based). Our advisors and professors ensure Promise Scholars are academically supported and aided in finding work terms and mentors to support their career aspirations. Preference will be given to Mi’kmaq or Black/African-Nova Scotian applicants who have attained an undergraduate degree in the last 5 years.
