Dr. Jeremy P. Richards Memorial Scholarship

Dr. Jeremy P. Richards Memorial Scholarship

The Dr. Jeremy P. Richards Memorial Scholarship has been established by family, friends, students, and colleagues to recognize Professor Richards’ seminal contributions to our understanding of magmatic-hydrothermal and hydrothermal ore deposits. Professor Richards occupied a Tier I Canada Research Chair in Metallogeny in the Harquail School of Earth Sciences at Laurentian University. He was an internationally recognized authority in the geology and genesis of porphyry and epithermal deposits, which he studied globally, a mentor to many students and post-doctoral fellows, and a valued consultant to industry.

Awarded annually to a minimum of one student enrolled in the thesis-based MSc or PhD program working in the field of ore-deposit geology (preferably the metallogenesis of magmatic-hydrothermal or hydrothermal ore deposits), the award will be made on the basis of academic excellence and financial need. Should no suitable candidate be available in any given year, the funds will be reinvested into the Endowment.

Completed applications should be submitted to the Faculty of Graduate Studies no later than February 15th. Applications can be submitted electronically to gradstudies@laurentian.ca with the subject title: “Dr. Jeremy P. Richards Memorial Scholarship”. The application packages will then be forwarded to the department for ranking. Rankings must be returned to the Faculty of Graduate studies by March 15th. Applicants will be notified of award results by April 1st. Value is variable.
