Chapter Awards

Among its many activities, the Sigma Xi organization awards hundreds of grants and prizes annually to promising student researchers and teachers and sponsors a variety of programs that serve science and society. This includes science and engineering education and the public understanding of science. In support of these goals, our chapter offers the following awards:

Toronto Science Fair (TSF) seeks to offer a top quality science fair experience for all students in Toronto from kindergarten to grade 12. The two-day fair is held annually at the University of Toronto, Scarborough, in early April. Some of the winners will go on to compete in the Canada-Wide Science Fair in May

Working with the TSF organization, our chapter awards two, $150 cash prizes to two deserving students during the Fair award ceremonies. Students do not have to apply for the awards.
