Description: Granted each year to a returning student in undergraduate studies majoring in Environmental Studies at UPEI. The successful recipient will have a demonstrated knowledge and appreciation for the impact that climate change is having on Prince Edward Island and beyond.
Background: Cyril and Daisy Sanderson raised a family of three sons in Greenwich, Prince Edward Island. The family farm where they resided comprised one of North America's rarest sand dune formations- the internationally recognized Greenwich parabolic sand dunes. Each of the boys was brought up with a healthy respect for the farming and agriculture industry while appreciating the importance and delicate nature of ensuring that endangered areas such as the parabolic sand dunes were respected and protected. In addition to understanding the importance of their environment, the Sanderson parents were also keenly aware of the significance of a post-secondary education to their sons' future. J. Brian Sanderson (BSc. '71), Kevin Sanderson (BSc. '75), and Dana Sanderson (BBA '84) are all alumni of the University of Prince Edward Island. They have established this award to support UPEI students who will continue the important work of protecting our environment.
