CDA awards two scholarships
University of Alberta student Marie-Eve Jean and the University of Ottawa’s Marta Lopez-Egea have been awarded the Canadian Dam Association’s scholarships for 2014.
Ms. Jean received the CDA-Gary Salmon Memorial Scholarship. Her current work is on reservoir management for sustainable irrigation in Alberta.
Ms. Lopez-Egea received the CDA Research Scholarship for her work on experimental and numerical investigations of submerged hydraulic jumps forming downstream from low-head dams.
CDA offers annually two scholarships to full-time post¬graduate 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 CDA Research Scholarship, valued at $2,500, was established in 2012 and is 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.
