Archaeology and Palaeoecology student Gavin Bradley has been awarded the Canadian Memorial Scholarship for the upcoming academic year. This highly competitive award, run by the Association of Commonwealth Universities group, commemorates those Canadians who fell during the First and Second World Wars, and offers a final year undergraduate student one fully funded academic year in the pursuit of a Masters degree at a Canadian University. After being shortlisted from hundreds of applicants from all over the UK, Gavin successfully came through an interview stage in the Canadian High Embassy in London, to be offered the scholarship. The award, chosen based on academic achievement, leadership potential and the presentation of a potential research project, hopes to strengthen the cultural bonds between the UK and Canada through the exchange of students from a wide variety of disciplines. Having completed a successful second year of his BSc at the University of Alberta, Edmonton, through the Queen’s exchange programme, Gavin will now be returning to the same institution, where he will be working towards an MSc in Dinosaur Palaeobiology, under world-renowned palaeontologist Dr. Philip Currie.
