Gérard T. Simon Awards
Two Gérard T. Simon Awards will be presented for the best student presentations, one in Materials Sciences and one in Biological Sciences. The presentation may be oral or poster format.
To be considered for an award, the first author on the poster must be a student or technologist and the appropriate box must be checked on the Paper Submission Form. The e-mail address of a person who will confirm student or technologist status must be provided with the Paper Submission.

The Canadian Foundation for the Development of Microscopy (CFDM), an arm of the Microscopical Society of Canada, is a charitable organization whose aim is to promote the development of microscopy and associated techniques. Part of its mandate is to provide funds for educational opportunities for young scientists. In 2012, we are offering two awards to assist with the travel expenses of Canadian university students to participate in the MSC-SMC Annual Meeting in Halifax.
The Board of the CFDM will review submissions by students and evaluate them according to the following criteria: scientific merit, significance of the research, creativity and a letter of reference.
The deadline for submissions is May 1st. Recipients will be announced on the MSC-SMC website: http://www.msc-smc.org/.
