Cora Shea Memorial Fund - Deadline May 31

The Cora Shea Memorial Fund was established to provide modest financial assistance to women seeking to do snow or avalanche research and/or study towards professional practice in avalanche safety, education or forecasting. The fund offers up to two awards per year of CAD$750 in support of women of any nationality pursuing snow or avalanche science/research, or courses to advance their professional practice in avalanche education, avalanche safety, or forecasting. Travel and direct expenses for relevant conferences and courses are specifically included (like the International Snow Science Workshop 2014).

Those interested may send in an application to the Canadian Avalanche Foundation at by May 31. For more information, please visit
