Award-Winning Students

Janis Geary, PhD candidate, received the Izaak Walton Killam Memorial Scholarship in 2014.

Our students are the best advocates for our programs. Over the past 10 years, many have made significant accomplishments while completing their degree programs. Whether being named a Vanier Scholar, receiving the Governor General’s Gold Medal at graduation, or winning any number of university, provincial or national awards, they are highly accomplished and we are proud of all they have achieved.
