ASTM International Honors Margaret Wilson with Mary R. Norton Scholarship


ASTM International’s metallography committee (E04) has honored Margaret Wilson, graduate student at Dalhousie University, with the Mary R. Norton Scholarship Award for Women.

The $1,000 scholarship encourages women undergraduate seniors or first-year graduate students to pursue the study of physical metallurgy or materials science with an emphasis on the relationship of microstructure to material properties. 

Wilson holds a bachelor’s degree in materials engineering from Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia, Canada, where she is currently a first-year graduate student studying materials engineering.

Wilson’s interest in materials science was piqued after experiencing the 2011 earthquake in Christchurch, New Zealand. She wanted to understand how to make buildings resistant to the damage that earthquakes can cause.
