Nawrot Family Undergraduate Research Scholarship

The Nawrot Family Undergraduate Research Scholarship will benefit full-time undergraduate students who are enrolled in a four year Bachelor of Environmental Studies program and are conducting research or presenting at an academic conference. This award was established through a bequest from Kathleen Nawrot and her sister Jean Kroll, in memory of the late Mark Nawrot, former student in the Faculty of Environmental Studies (now the Faculty of Environmental and Urban Change) at York University.
Application Process
To be eligible students must submit to the Student Resource Assistant at HNES 133: a) an outline of their field work plans, the conference program or other related documents; b) a 200 word statement explaining how this activity will help them pursue their learning goals; c) a one page budget for the research activity; d) a letter of support from a professor in the BES program with whom they have taken a class in the last year; and e) if doing field work or travelling internationally, a completed Risk Assessment. For conference attendance, preference will be given to students who are presenting or co-presenting papers or posters. Preference will also be given to students undertaking Senior Hours Work (ENVS 4011).
