Student Accomplishments

Students in the geology department at St. Lawrence University continue to win scholarships, fellowships, and awards to support and recognize their exceptional research efforts. Many students receive summer fellowships to begin the field and laboratory work associated with their senior theses and independent projects. Five of our students have won best presentation awards from Sigma Gamma Epsilon (Geology Honorary Society) for their presentations at national and regional meetings since 2008. Recently, at the national meeting of the Geological Society of America in Denver in October 2010, both Hannah Cowan (’11) and John Murphy (’11) won awards for their poster presentations. A variety of students have won scholarships through various organizations supporting the training of geoscientists.
