Concordia University

Department Biology

Overview The Division of Research and Graduate Studies:

- Assists researchers in identifying funding sources and in preparing, submitting and administering research grant applications and contracts
- Provides financial support to graduate students

Awards and scholarships available to graduate students at Acadia are:

- Geldart Milner Memorial Scholarship
- IUGB Wildlife Research Award
- Deacon George Thomas
- Dr. J. Murray Beardsley (2)
- Alden B. Dawson (1-2)
- Dr. Muriel Roscoe Memorial
- Harry E. Felch
- Robie Tufts Research Scholarship

Research Facilities The Department has extensive animal and human research facilities that are supported by the University and numerous granting agencies. Currently, departmental faculty members attain about 2.4 million dollars annually in external funding to support their research. Because of such high levels of funding, laboratories within the Department provide faculty and students with an excellent environment for conducting their research. Research laboratories are well-equipped, with ample computing facilities at both the local network and the university-wide levels.
