DLSPH Students Among Recipients of the 2019 Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarships
Nine DLSPH students from public health and health systems research received Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarships and Banting Postdoctoral Fellows this year.
“Our strong showing is a testament to the rigour and strength of our academic program,” says Dean Adalsteinn (Steini) Brown, “On behalf of our community, I congratulate our award recipients and wish them success.”
The Government of Canada launched the Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarships program to attract and retain world-class doctoral students and establish Canada as a global centre of excellence in research and higher learning. This year, 166 students from across the country were awarded Vanier scholarships and 70 received Banting fellowships.
Vanier Scholars demonstrate leadership skills and a high standard of scholarly achievement in graduate studies in the social sciences and humanities, natural sciences and/or engineering and health.
