Each year, the Blomidon Naturalists Society awards the Merritt Gibson Natural History and Environment Award to a full-time honours or graduate Acadia University student, in the Departments of Biology or Earth and Environmental Science. This scholarship serves to support aspiring naturalists in their endeavours to understand and protect the environment.
The award was originally established in 2013 as the Blomidon Naturalists Society Award.
The student must show a strong academic record and a research interest in natural history, the environment, and/or conservation.
We are not currently accepting applicants. A call for submissions will be announced in late winter 2021.
