Attention Members! SFPE International’s Educational & Scientific Foundation Board of Governors makes numerous scholarships and awards available each year. The Dr. Guylène Proulx Scholarship provides at least one recipient with up to $5,000.00 annually. The scholarship is awarded to an undergraduate or graduate student undertaking a research project in the field of human factors or human behaviour related to fire or emergencies.

As described on the SFPE website, Dr. Guylène Proulx was an outstanding researcher in human factors and human behavior related to fire. She received her Ph.D. in architectural planning/environmental psychology from the Université de Montréal in 1992, following which she joined the Institute for Research in Construction, National Research Council Canada (NRC) to conduct research in human factors related to fire. For that research, she received international acclaim from all of the diverse interests in the fire safety community. This scholarship honors her legacy by building on the research in her chosen profession.
