Marcelle-Gauvreau Excellence Award

A new student grant was created for the centenary of the IRBV. The Marcelle-Gauvreau Excellence Award will be given annually to an IRBV student who demonstrates exceptional commitment to their community and research excellence, while sharing scientific knowledge with the general public. This $5000 award was made possible by an initial donation from the Friends of the Montréal Botanical Garden. Mrs Paule Lamontagne gave Jacques Brodeur a symbolic check during the society’s annual assembly. Heartfelt thanks to the Friends of the Montréal Botanical Garden.
