Edmonton Consular Corps Award

"My experience in India was amazing and I would not have traded it in for anything. I learned a lot not only about the Indian rice seed production system but also about myself in terms of professional and personal abilities. I cannot thank the Consular Corps enough for helping me fund my trip and allowing me to pursue my interests." - Monica Shandal, MSc - Resource Economics and Environmental Sociology, 2017 Edmonton Consular Corps Award recipient
