Carl Manning Prize

This prize is awarded annually to the student with the highest standing in CHM242H5 and CHM243H5 who is enrolled in one of the Specialist programs in Chemistry.

It was established in 1989 by Dr. Carl Manning's family, friends and colleagues. Dr. Manning’s sudden passing as a result of a traffic accident in the spring of 1978 was a shock to all. They chose to remember his enthusiasm for teaching Chemistry at Erindale College (former name of U of T Mississauga) by creating an award in his name.

The Chemical Institute of Canada Book Prize (Erindale)

The award is awarded annually to a student who has completed 3rd year with high academic standing in a program involving Chemistry and who has shown improvement (possibly, but not necessarily the student with the 2nd highest standing.)

It was officially established at U of T Mississauga (formerly Erindale College) in 1979 by the Chemical Institute of Canada, to recognize scholarship at U of T Mississauga. The Chemical Institute of Canada is the major professional society for chemists and chemical engineers in this country and has been rewarding scholars for many years.

The Chemical Institute of Canada Silver Medal (Erindale)

This award is awarded annualy to student who has completed 3rd year with the highest standing (CGPA) in a specialist program involving Chemistry.

It was established in this format at U of T Mississauga (formerly Erindale College) in 1979 by The Chemical Institute of Canada (CIC) to recognize scholarship at U of T Mississauga. The CIC is the major professional society for chemists and chemical engineers in this country and has been rewarding scholars for many years.

The Igor Bolta Scholarship in Chemistry

This award is awarded annually to the full time student with the highest standing in CHM242H5 and CHM243H5; student must be returning to full-time studies in Year II of the Chemistry Major program.

It was established in 1983 by Dr. Igor Bolta, a graduate of Erindale College (now of U of T Mississauga) in 1972. Dr. Bolta continued to be an active member of the Erindale community long after his graduation. His sudden passing in the spring of 1984 was a shock to his family, friends and colleagues.

The James J. Rae Chemistry Prize

This award is awarded annually to full-time student with highest standing in CHM140Y5.

It was established in 1978 by family, friends and colleagues in memory of Dr James J. Rae. Dr. Rae was involved in the development of Erindale College (now the University of Toronto Mississauga) and served as its Registrar from 1967 to 1975.

Lawrence V. Redman Prize in Chemistry (Erindale)

This award is awarded annually to a student with outstanding results in CHM140Y5: usually given to student with the 2nd highest marks.

It was established in 1986 from the estate of the late Lawrence Vincent Redman in order to honour excellence in Chemistry at U of T Mississauga.

The Moore Award in Chemistry

This award is awarded annually to a student with highest standing in 2nd, 3rd, or 4th year in Chemistry Specialist or Major.

It was were established in 2007 by G.W. Kent Moore, Professor of Physics and past Chair of the Department of Chemical and Physical Sciences. Professor Moore’s research interests include high latitude climate dynamics, mountain meteorology and high altitude physiology.

The Society of Chemical Industry Merit Award (Canadian Section)

This award is awarded annually to the student who has achieved the highest standing in the 4th and final year of a Chemistry Specialist program, or in combination with allied subjects such as Physics, Mathematics, Geology, Biochemistry, etc. In addition to completing such a program within 4 years, the recipient of the award must have attained a minimum average of 75%.

It was originally established at U of T Mississauga (formerly Erindale college) in 1979 by The Society of Chemical Industry (SCI), Canadian Section to recognize scholarship at U of T Mississauga. The SCI was established in England in 1881 ”to advance applied chemistry in all its branches. To afford its members opportunities for the interchange of ideas with respect to improvements in the various chemical industries and for the discussion of all matter bearing upon the practice of applied chemistry and the publication of the information thereon.” (Quoted from the Society of Chemical Industry, Canadian Section Merit Awards brochure, 1979.)
