Origins of the Fellowship

Born in Rangoon, Burma (now Myanmar) in 1932, Hugh Morris was a renowned geologist, philanthropist, industry leader, and science supporter. While studying in South Africa in the early 1950’s, Hugh was awarded the Chamber of Mines Gold Medal and Travelling Research Scholarship, which enabled him to travel across North America. On that trip, he visited more than 65% of the continent’s mines and leading research institutions, an experience that profoundly shaped his future.  The Hugh Morris Experiential Learning Fellowship has been created to honour his legacy and inspire the next generation to begin their journey. Where will your journey take you?
