Universities, industry
get more NSERC $$$
Scott Fraser
Stephen Crowley
Martin Gleave
Winner of $3,500 Sherwood Lett
Memorial Scholarship this year is 3rd-
year Commerce student Scott Fraser of
Richmond, who hopes to work in
fapanfor a period after graduation.
The Amy E. Sauder Scholarship,
worth $2, 750, goes to Stephen Crowley
of West Vancouver, who is in 2nd year
Dentistry. Martin Gleave, who won the
Bobby Gaul Trophy as UBC's
outstanding male athlete last year, has
now been awarded the $1,850 Harry
Logan Scholarship. He's from
Vancouver and is in 4th year
Medicine.
Closer research co-operation between
industry and university is the aim of an
increase in research programs of the
Natural Sciences and Engineering Research
Council of Canada.
NSERC is the largest single source of
research funding in Canada. More than
one-third of the $47 million UBC spent on
research last year came from NSERC in
the form of 613 different awards to faculty
members.
NSERC president Gordon MacNabb says
he expects to be able to make awards
under the expanded initiatives during this
fiscal year ending March 31.
Among the new activities of the council:
Industrial Research Professorships to
provide support to a senior research
professor and possibly a number of
research associates for five to 10 years;
Co-operative Facilities and Equipment to
provide financial incentives for companies
to share with or provide new equipment to
university researchers;
Industrial Associate Memberships to help
disseminate research information between
universities and industry through research
and development seminars, publications
and access to consulting and other services;
Co-operative Research: an expansion of
the existing Project Research Applicable in
Industry (PRAI) program;
Workshops and Seminars. A program to
help defray costs.
Service Workshops. To defray some of
the costs involved in bringing together a
team consisting of a number of faculty,
students and company representatives to
engage in analysis of a particular problem
presented by the company;
Visiting Industrial Professorships. A
contribution to the salary and other
expenses so that an industrial researcher
can spend time at a university.
In addition to established and new
programs, NSERC welcomes any suggestion
for co-operative research "that provides a
suitable challenge within the University
research environment and which entails a
reasonable industrial contribution."
The contribution can be in the form of
money, researchers, or equipment.
NSERC has also established a university-
industry task force as part of its expanded
activities.
The council was also the largest single
source of outside scholarship support for
UBC graduate students last year, a total of
more than $2 million for 180 students.
Forty-two UBC researchers have received
strategic grants from NSERC worth about
$2.4 million this year.
About $1.4 million of that amount were
renewed grants for 24 scientists.
Approximately $1 million in new grants
was shared by 18 UBC faculty members.
The largest single grant was a renewal of
$153,700 to Prof. Jochen Meyer of the
physics department. His work concerns
some of the problems associated with
containing plasma — super-heated gas
sometimes referred to as the fourth state of
matter      within a sphere of laser beams.
For more detailed information, faculty
members should contact the Office of
Research Services.

Senator Jack Austin escorts Premier Zhao Ziyang of China to lunch at
MacKenzie House. Chinese delegation of 89 government officials and journalists
spent the afternoon of fan. 21 at UBC and visited the Museum of Anthropology.
Food services catered to the official luncheon which featured beef tenderloin.
Tuition fees go up 33 per cent
The University has raised student tuition
fees and imposed enrolment restrictions to
help balance the UBC budget.
The Senate voted Jan. 18 to limit first-
year enrolment in September to
approximately 3,250 students, 447 fewer
than were admitted in September of 1983.
Criterion for admission will be a student's
academic record in Grades 11 and 12.
On Jan. 19, the UBC Board of
Governors approved increases in student
tuition fees for 1984-85 averaging 33 per
cent.
This is expected to bring in about $7
million, but $1 million will be returned to
students in the form of financial aid.
The Board also .established differential
fees for foreign undergraduate students
who enrol at UBC for the first time in
1984-85. They will pay 1.5 times the
regular fee. The 256 undergraduate
international students already enrolled at
UBC will not be affected for the next two
fiscal years.
On the enrolment limitation, the Senate
Admissions Committee reported that
"without adequate funding the University
can no longer admit all applicants to first
year who meet the minimum entrance
requirements and at the same time
maintain the quality of education that has
been provided in the past."

David
Thompson
closing
The David Thompson University Centre
in Nelson, operated jointly by the
University of Victoria and Selkirk College
of Castlegar, will close permanently as of
May 1, 1984, after a life of seven years less
a month.
"It is no longer possible to fund the
centre, with its limited enrolment and
relatively high costs," Education Minister
Jack Heinrich said on Jan. 4 when he
announced the closure.
The closure is expected to save the
government about $2.7 million a year.
This year there ?re 75 UVic students
taking third and four-year courses at the
centre, and approximately another 400 are
Selkirk students.
More than 90 faculty and support staff
will lose their jobs, including 12 sessional
faculty with University of Victoria
appointments.
Approximately 50 fulltime students at
the centre who still have a year to go on
two-year career programs will get
government assistance to enable them to
complete their programs elsewhere. No
such assurances have been given the
remaining students.
The provincial government bought the
campus and other assets of the former
Notre Dame University in Nelson on June
1, 1977, and renamed the campus the
David Thompson University Centre.
It was to have been the first of a number
of advanced educational centres for the
province, for the delivery of senior
academic and professional programs. The
centres were going to be phased in as
rapidly as possible, the government said
then.
B.C. Research
hosts seminar
A seminar on Technology Protection and
Transfer will be given Feb. 16 at B.C.
Research, 3650 Wesbrook Mall, by
Canadian Patents and Development Ltd.,
starting at 2 p.m.
Canadian Patents and Development is a
federal crown corporation which reports
through Industry, Trade and Commerce.
Its function is to receive technology and
exploit it commercially.
University faculty and staff are invited.
UNIVERSITIES AT RISK:
AN UNCERTAIN FUTURE
Is tenure essential to academic freedom? Should the provincial government
play a role in shaping the university — and does it have a vision of the
university's mission?
These and other questions will be explored in a series of discussions organized
by the Education Committee of the SFU Faculty Association. Called Universities
at Risk: An Uncertain Future, this series begins Thursday, Feb. 2, and runs five
Thursdays, through March 1. Sessions will be held from 11:30 - 1:30, in B9200
at SFU.
Speakers from UBC include Prof. Dennis Pavlich (Law) and Prof. Gideon
Rosenbluth (Economics).
For further information, contact Kelleen Toohey at 291-4397 or the SFU
Faculty Association at 291-4584.

Nodwell heads
Science Council
Roy Nodwell, who retired last year as
head of the UBC Department of Physics,
has been appointed chairman of the
Science Council of B.C.
Dr. Nodwell, a long-standing member of
B.C.'s science community, has been a
director of the council since 1981.
Dr. Nodwell is chairman of the board
and a working member of TIR Systems
Ltd., an innovative new B.C. company
which designed and now produces prism
pipes for transporting light.
Dr. Nodwell's term as chairman of the
Science Council runs from Jan. 20, 1984,
to Jan. 15, 1986.
The council advises the provincial
government on matters of science and
research policy and is responsible for
awarding approximately $5 million each
year to applied research projects in the
province.

UBC lamp
acclaimed
A new type of lamp developed at UBC
has been chosen as one of the 100 most
significant technological advances of 1983
by the magazine Industrial Research and
Development.
The "Vortek arc-lamp" was developed in
UBC's physics department and is now
being manufactured and distributed by
Vortek Industries of Vancouver, a new
company formed as a result of the
development.
The high-intensity lamp may also be
used to illuminate the waterfront portion
of Expo 86.
Med school
students tops
in Canada
Successful applicants to UBC's medical
school have higher scores in an
international admission test than students
admitted to any other Canadian medical
school.
And in North America, they are
surpassed only by students admitted to
medical schools at Harvard and Stanford
Universities.
The test is the Medical College
Admission Test written by all students
applying to medical schools in North
America. Such tests are standard entrance
requirements to a number of professional
schools such as medicine, law and business
administration.
The latest figures compare results of
applicants who wrote the exam between
April, 1979 and September, 1982.
UBC applicants have scored consistently
high in the tests since the Faculty of
Medicine admitted its first class in 1950.
