Four students have been awarded prestigious 2019 Arthur Irving Scholarships in Environmental Science at Acadia University. The recipients, from schools in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Ontario, exemplify an extraordinary commitment to changing the way humans care for the planet through research in fields including marine biology, genetics, waste reduction, and protecting species at risk. They are all outstanding young scholars who demonstrate leadership and compassion combined with an interest in pursuing scientific research.

This year’s recipients of the Arthur Irving undergraduate scholarships are Olivia Crooks from Coldbrook, NS; Natalie Koopman from Perth Road, ON; Abby Legere from Yarmouth, NS; and Sophie Visser from Waterville, NS.
