The Robert Deverall Chemical and Environmental Technology Scholarships

The Robert Deverall Chemical and Environmental Technology Scholarships sponsored by CCIL, established on December 17, 2014

1) The Robert Deverall Chemical and Environmental Technology Scholarship - First Year Achievement Award, going to someone entering 2nd year

and

2) The Robert Deverall Chemical and Environmental Technology Scholarships - Second Year Achievement Award, a graduating award for someone completing the 2-year program

  • In both cases, the awards are for students in the chemical and environmental technology program - analytical sciences option.
  • In both cases, the award is based on academic achievement but should also consider the student's overall qualities and thus based on one or more of the following: extra-curricular involvement within BCIT, community involvement (i.e. volunteer activities) and/or communication capabilities.

Both annual scholarships will be in the amount of $2,500.00 each.

Ambrose ChungAmbrose Chung

First Recipient - 2015

 

Ambrose Chung graduated in 2012 from UBC with a B.Sc. in Environmental Sciences. He then registered for the Chemical and Environmental Technology Program at BCIT. This program helped him develop his practical skills in the lab and also allowed him to focus in his area of specialization to analytical chemistry. Currently working at ALS Environmental as a lab analyst, it is his intention to pursue a Masters in Environmental Science and to focus on environmental site assessments.
