Environmental students looking for financial assistance have the chance to apply for grants honoring the legacy of a shoreline hero through Lake Huron Centre for Coastal Conservation (LHCCC).
The Geoff Peach Scholarship Fund consists of two grants per year of up to $1500 and are available to students interested in conducting research along the Lake Huron coast.
The late Geoff Peach was an environmental advocate whose actions and influence spanned 3 decades along the Lake Huron coast.
His expertise in coastal management, especially in the field of beach and dune ecosystems, meant his work was known and respected from all over the Great Lakes to Australia and California. The Geoff Peach Scholarship Fund was created to continue his work and that of the Lake Huron Centre for Coastal Conservation.
The Grant is available to university graduate students (Masters and PhD) with conservation and environmental research interests along Lake Huron about: Biodiversity, Coastal processes, Dune conservation, Water quality and Plastics pollution.
