Grad Student Receives Finnigan Award - NAPEG

Congratulations to PhD student Clare Miller, who received the Finnigan Award for Northern Research from the Northwest Territories and Nunavut Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists (NAPEG).

The award is inspired by Dr. Craig Finnigan. Dr. Finnigan was a Professional Geoscientist who spent the majority of his short career working across the Canadian north for industry, government, and academia. Craig passed away in 2014 at the age of 45, however his passion for geoscientific field work and exploration has left an imprint on those who worked with him over the years. To honour Craig’s memory, a student focused scholarship that encourages presentation at northern conferences has been established.

More information is available on the Northwest Territories Geological Survey website.

Congratulations, Clare!
