We are pleased to announce the inaugural Dr. Rowland Marshall Prize in the Science of New Energy.


This award will be presented to a full-time student enrolled in the Faculty of Science at Saint Mary’s University, for a paper on something new and innovative related to the study of new energy – with particular interest in renewable resources and energy.

Consideration will be given to the following:

  • Recognition of the student’s existing work on new energy sources
  • Incubation opportunity for research in new energy
  • Incentive for an innovative approach to new energy sources

The award can be for the paper itself or can be used as seed funding for a thesis.

The concept must be explained in fewer than 500 words, supported by images or diagrams as appropriate.

Awards will be determined by a selection committee struck by the Dean of Science in consultation with the Financial Aid Office – Enrolment Services.
