Bring Back the Wild (2013-2016)

Earth Rangers is an award-winning charity focused on communicating a positive, science-based message to children on the importance of protecting biodiversity.  Through their live shows, online community, television presence and Bring Back the Wild program, they educate over a million children a year about the importance of biodiversity and inspire them to become directly involved in protecting animals and their habitats. 

 Almost unanimously, children identify the crisis facing animals as their number one environmental concern and are passionate about taking action to protect species and their habitats.  Earth Rangers has responded to this by developing Bring Back the Wild (BBtW).  BBtW educates children and their families on the importance of biodiversity and raises funds to support the acquisition and restoration of endangered habitats across the country. 

Krembil Internship Award (2015-2017)

The Krembil Foundation has agreed to support the Krembil Internship program for first year MBA/IMBA students at the Schulich School of Business at York University for the 2014/2015, 2015/2016 & 2016/2017 academic terms.  The Krembil Foundation sees this grant as a means to encourage MBA/IMBA students to seek employment in the public health sector.  

Robert Krembil Scholarship of Merit Award (2014-2019)

The Robert Krembil Scholarship of Merit was created by Schulich alumnus, Robert Krembil, CM (MBA ’71, Hon LLD ’00) to recognize incoming MBA/IMBA students who demonstrate the highest academic standing, a minimum of four years working experience, excellent communication skills, leadership ability, and contribution within the community. The scholarships are renewable in the second year of the MBA/IMBA program with achievement of a GPA of 7.0 (A-) on the first 30 credit-hours of course work. The scholarship is allocated in the fall of each year. Selected incoming students are invited to apply.

Krembil Galileo Galilei Chair in Theoretical Physics

Davide Gaiotto (2014-2021)
Davide Gaiotto is widely regarded as one of the world’s most brilliant young quantum field theorists.  He received his PhD from Princeton University in 2004 before becoming a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard University from 2004 to 2007, and a long-term Member at the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton from 2007 to 2011.  Gaiotto has achieved important conceptual advances in our understanding of the behavior of strongly coupled quantum fields, within a unified framework known as supersymmetry.  He was awarded the 2001 Gribov Medal of the European Physical Society and the New Horizons in Physics Prize from the Fundamental Physics Prize Foundation.


Krembil William Rowan Hamilton Chair in Theoretical Physics 

Kevin Costello (2014-2021)
Kevin Costello literally wrote the book on renormalization and quantum field theory.  It is becoming the standard reference in this emerging field.  A 2003 graduate of Cambridge University and currently full professor of mathematics at Northwestern University, Costello is a brilliant young mathematical physicist working on topics in algebra and geometry that relate to quantum field theory and string theory.  

Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics
Perimeter Institute is a leading centre for scientific research, training and educational outreach in foundational theoretical physics.  Founded in 1999 in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, its mission is to advance our understanding of the universe at the most fundamental level, stimulating the breakthroughs that could transform our future. Perimeter also trains the next generation of physicists through innovative programs, and shares the excitement and wonder of science with students, teachers and the general public.
