Four students from our faculty were honoured at the 32nd annual Quebec university sports gala on Wednesday. Some 75 cheques totaling $301,500 were issued by the Quebec Foundation for Athletic Excellence at the event, which took place before more than 650 guests at the Sheraton Laval, just north of Montreal. In total, 13 students across the entire university received bursaries.
We are pleased to inform you that Jade Sauvé, one of our undergraduate students, supervised by her research advisor, Carolina Dufour, won the Canadian Meteorological and Oceanographic Society prize for the best student poster in physical oceanography or atmospheric sciences at the Québec Océan meeting two weeks ago.
The title of her poster is “"Antarctic sea ice trend: Insights from a suite of climate models.”
Please join us in congratulating them for this outstanding recognition.
