GSF Recipients (2011)

The GSF Program provides fellowships to students who intend to pursue a course of study in economic geology leading to a Professional Master’s, Master of Science (M.Sc.) and/or Ph.D. degree, with preference given to those who will be entering graduate school following completion of a Bachelor of Science (BS) degree, or equivalent. A total of US$140,000 has been awarded to 17 students and CAN$20,000 has been awarded to five students who will be entering graduate school this year, or who are currently enrolled as first-year graduate students. This is one of the Foundation's three core student programs "to encourage and develop a new generation of economic geologists".
