On October 27, 2014, Jennifer Day, Queen's Geology PhD student, was presented the 2014 Eisenstein Memorial Scholarship by the Tunneling Association of Canada.

To support the education and training of new talent to the tunneling industry, each year the Tunneling Association of Canada awards a scholarship for further study by a tunnel engineering student. The Dan Eisenstein Memorial Scholarship is presented in memory of Professor Dan Eisenstein who was Professor Emeritus of Civil Engineering at The University of Alberta in Edmonton as well as President of the International Tunelling Association in 1992-95. The scholarship is awarded to a post-graduate student of Canadian citizenship planning to undertake or currently undertaking post-graduate studies in the field of tunnelling at a recognized university in Canada.

Congratulations Jennifer!
