Today saw a first-time event occurring for the Environmental and Wildlife Management Program, and one of which we are very proud. With 1st and 2nd year EWM students in attendance, we launched a program-dedicated scholarship, which will result in cash awards being made annually to two students who are continuing their studies at the EWM Field Station in the Gore Township, just north of Lachute.
Applications for the scholarships, which must be submitted by the students by late spring of 2013, will focus on community involvement, character, and academic performance.
The scholarship was generously proposed, and will be funded by, the Lachute-based forestry and environmental consulting company, Horizon Multiressource, and its parent company, Terra-Bois Cooperative. Mr. André Goulet, General Manager of Horizon Multiressource, was on hand to make the announcement.
The faculty and staff of the EWM Program would like to extend their sincerest thanks to Mr. Goulet and his organization for this initiative, one which is very much in keeping with their ongoing work in environmental and sustainable endeavours.
