The Stephen and Lynn Mandel Graduate Scholarship in Sexual and Gender Minority Studies is the first lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans-identified, or queer (LGBTQ) specific graduate scholarship to be offered in the history of the University of Alberta.
This scholarship will be awarded to a graduate student at the University of Alberta with superior academic achievement (3.5 or higher GPA) and quality research focused on sexual and gender minority studies and their application in advocating for sexual and gender minorities in educational and community contexts. Recipients will be selected on the basis of academic standing and their research and advocacy/outreach profile.
Preference will be given to graduate students in the Faculty of Education. Students from outside the University of Alberta are not eligible for this award.
