Michael J. Keen Memorial Award
Michael J. Keen (1935 - 1991) was a prominent Canadian geoscientist. He was a professor in the Department of geology from 1961 - 1977 and Chairman of the Department for many of those years. From 1977 to 1991 he was with the Atlantic Geoscience Centre ( GSC(Atlantic). He devoted much of his time and interest towards encouraging young people, especially women, towards science.
The Keen Award provides stipend funding for a female undergraduate student summer research experience in the Department of Earth Sciences similar to an NSERC USRA. The successful student will work closely with a supervisor in the Department with the goal of exposing the student to scientific research work in general and to specific research in the field of Earth Sciences.
