James L Hall Scholarship

The James L. Hall Award will be awarded to a student who has completed his first year of residence at Dalhousie with a high academic standing, and preference will go to a student planning a career in the mining industry.  The scholarship was created by the widow of James L. Hall, in memory of her husband, who was a student at Dalhousie from 1919 to 1921, and by Elizabeth L. Hall, his sister. The first Hall Award was made in 1939 and this is the 80th presentation of the award.

2021 Recipient
This year’s awardee is Samantha Shapira in recognition of her high academic record and clear career plan in the mining industry. Samantha is currently a fifth-year student completing a double major in Earth and Environmental Sciences. She was named to the Dean’s List in past years. Her career aspirations lie in post-mining cleanup and mitigating the contaminants caused by mines. She would like to be the environmental remediation specialist on-site who helps design plans for how to operate the mine in an environmentally friendly way while still being efficient and productive.
