The Brian McCarry Graduate Chemistry Scholarship - McMaster University
In 2013, the environmental community of Hamilton was saddened by the passing of Dr. Brian McCarry (1946 – 2013) who had served as Chair of Clean Air Hamilton since 2000. Dr. McCarry also served as Chair of the Hamilton Air Monitoring Network and the Upwind Downwind Conference. He taught at the Department of Chemistry at McMaster University for 37 years and held the Stephen A. Jarislowsky Chair in Environment and Health since 1999. His international reputation in environmental chemistry and toxicology was mirrored by his reputation in the Hamilton area for his tireless efforts on behalf of the local community and its environment.
In 2014 The Brian McCarry Graduate Chemistry Scholarship was established by friends, family, colleagues, and industry partners in memory of Brian. This scholarship is to be awarded by the School of Graduate Studies to a graduate student currently enrolled in the Chemistry graduate program. Preference will be given to students pursuing industry-related research.
HIEA is proud to have contributed to the scholarship fund.
