A $1,700 award has been made available through an endowment established by Jean and Stephen Johnson, members of the South Vancouver Island Mycology Society (SVIMS), friends and members of SVIMS, and the Vancouver Mycological Society (VMS). Jean's many legacies include the initiation of this award to honour the educational and scientific contributions made by Oluna and Adolf Ceska to mushrooming and mycology in British Columbia and beyond. The award is open to undergraduate or graduate students who conduct mycological research. Preference will go to students researching the mushrooms and fungi of British Columbia. The award is made on the recommendation of the Department of Botany, and in the case of graduate students, in consultation with the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies.
