CDA invites applications for scholarships


The Canadian Dam Association offers annually two scholarships to full-time postgraduate students attending a Canadian university or college whose program of study focuses on dam safety and/or the management of dams. The $5,000 CDA – Gary Salmon Memorial Scholarship was established in 2009 in honour of the late Gary Salmon, P. Eng. and is awarded to the top-ranked applicant. The $2,500 CDA Research Scholarship was established in 2012 and will be awarded to the second-ranked applicant.

The scholarships are awarded primarily on the basis of academic excellence and the relevance of the research project to the stated objective, as well as leadership and community involvement.

A 500-word synopsis of the proposed research project
