||The Ramsay Family Award for Field Studies in Biology
||Field courses play an important role in any program in biology. They remind students that all biological phenomena occur in whole organisms that live within populations and communities in living environments.
The opportunity to study biology in the field often serves as an important step in the identification and advancement of career goals for students. In spite of the opportunities, the costs of participating in field courses may be prohibitive for some students.
This award was established for students in an Honours program in Biology who have applied and been accepted into a field module given under the Ontario Universities Program in Field Biology (OUPFB): current biology courses B1367, B1390, B1391 and any others that may be added in future as a part of OUPFB.
The eligible candidate will have completed a minimum of 10.0 credits prior to the start of the field course. The candidate will have a minimum GPA of 7.5 in their most recent 5.0 senior credits.
The recipient must be a Canadian citizen, permanent resident (landed immigrant) or protected person, a long-term resident of Ontario, and will demonstrate financial need.
Previous recipients are ineligible to receive this award.
