The Volcanology and Igneous Petrology Division of the Geological Association of Canada annually presents three medals for the most outstanding theses, written by Canadians or submitted to Canadian universities, which comprise material at least 50% related to volcanology and igneous petrology. A gold (plated) medal is awarded for the best Ph.D. thesis, a silver medal for the best M.Sc. thesis and an antique copper medal for the best B.Sc. thesis. Nominated theses are evaluated on the basis or originality, validity of concepts, organization and presentation of data, understanding of volcanology, and depth of research. Awards are not made if the panel of judges considers that there are no worthy nominations.
