Field Work Support Program
posted 4 May 2012

Following the loss of the Delta Marsh Field station, the Faculty of Science created a Field Work Advisory Committee to make recommendations on how to support field work in the Faculty.  As a result of initial meetings held in early 2012, the Faculty is pleased to announce the Faculty of Science Field Work Support Program (FWSP).

The FWSP is intended to provide support for field work (both research and teaching) related activities by staff members in the Faculty of Science. Specifically, the program is meant to offset field-work costs.

With an anticipated annual allocation of approximately $70,000, the FWSP will run yearly competitions in the late fall soliciting proposals to support the cost of field work for either teaching or research related initiatives in the following year.

Please direct any questions/concerns to the Associate Dean Research
(at as the chair of the Committee, and we will do our best to resolve them.
