Its time we took note and took care of mother nature. A program aimed towards this goal is underway in USA.
It is called the Canon National Parks Science Scholars // Program. It currently inducts its ninth class with eight doctoral students -- from Canada to Chile, and from Florida to Ohio,
Illinois and Georgia. These chosen few are receiving significant multi-year scholarships this year to conduct cutting-edge research critical to conserving and managing
National parks throughout America.
This is a collaborative effort between Canon U.S.A., Inc., the National Park Service (NPS) and the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS). The programme selects and gives scholarships to students from the disciplines of biological sciences, physical sciences, social and cultural sciences, and technology innovation in support of conservation science.
According to Dr. Gary Machlis, Canon Scholars program coordinator and NPS visiting senior scientist "We are enthused and energized to welcome this new group of outstanding young scientists to the program. Their selection by the AAAS recognizes the scientific merit of their projects, which will benefit national
parks throughout the Americas."
As Yoroku Adachi, president and CEO of Canon U.S.A., Inc. and chairman of Canon Canada, Inc put it, "As a member of the world community, Canon will continue to actively contribute to society through programs that enhance scientific exploration and the protection of the global environment. We are proud to partner with AAAS and the U.S. NPS to sustain this unique and very important program."
AAAS CEO Alan I. Leshner said, "The Canon Scholars program perfectly fulfills AAAS' mission to advance science and innovation throughout the world for the benefit of all people. Investing in the next generation of researchers makes good sense for the long-term health of national parks,
national treasures throughout the Americas."
