Stan Paterson Scholarship

Stan Paterson

Stan Paterson (May 20, 1924 – October 8, 2013) was a leading Canadian glaciologist who began his career with the British North Greenland Expedition, then came to Canada to do a PhD in glaciology at the University of British Columbia. He worked for Canada’s Polar Continental Shelf Program (PCSCP) in the Canadian Arctic from 1962 to 1980. He wrote the seminal glaciology text The Physics of Glaciers, now in its fourth edition, and was awarded the International Glaciological Society’s Richardson Medal in 2012 for Outstanding Services to Glaciology.

The Stan Paterson Scholarship in Canadian Glaciology, awarded between 2013 and 2023, honours Dr. Paterson, and was made possible by an endowment from his estate. The scholarship was valued at $2,500.
