Sable Island Post-Secondary Award 2023

We are pleased to again offer “Inspired by Sable Island” – an award for post-secondary students – in partnership with Parks Canada.

Sable Island has been inspiring people for centuries, and Friends of Sable Island keeps that tradition alive through our education program and by supporting ongoing research and promotion of the island. This award helps us continue to inspire the hearts and minds of the next generation of those who will care for Sable Island National Park Reserve. Previous submissions have covered a wide variety of topics including dune erosion, bird migrations, and climate change, while the formats of the activities have ranged from direct support for current research on the island to creative non-fiction.

Students who have completed at least one year of post-secondary education and are returning to studies in the fall are eligible to apply. We are offering $500 and a day-trip to Sable Island National Park Reserve to promote learning and awareness of this Canadian national treasure. Deadline for applications is 11:59pm Atlantic Time on Saturday September 30, 2023.

For more details and the application form see Sable Island Award 2023 Application Form   

NOTE: The day-trip to Sable Island National Park Reserve is subject to scheduling, operational requirements, and as weather permits. The winning applicant will receive the $500 award even if the day-trip must be cancelled.
