Ryan is a recipient of the Marshall Syska Chemistry Graduate Scholarship. “Awarded to a student enrolled in either the PhD or Provisional PhD program who demonstrates superior academic achievement (equivalent to a grade point average of 3.5) in a minimum of four graduate level courses. Evidence of research productivity through publications or conference presentations, either submitted, in press or published will be weighed in addition to grade point.  Applicants must also demonstrate a superior teaching record and/or a strong interest in teaching. Examples of this include attaining a rating of Excellent in the majority of courses taught, or receiving a GSA or GSTA award, or achieving Level 2 in the Graduate Teaching and Learning Program.” Congratulations to Ryan!
