U of M students receive prestigious Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarships to pursue trailblazing research
A record six University of Manitoba graduate students are recipients of 2019 Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarships.
These awards, considered the Canadian equivalent of the United Kingdom’s Rhodes Scholarships, help recruit and keep in Canada top doctoral students from across the country and around the world. Each recipient will receive $150,000 over three years towards his or her research and this is the largest contingent of Vanier scholars ever announced by the U of M.
“These six students are emerging research leaders that are undertaking an impressive level and scope of studies,” said Digvir Jayas, vice-president (research and international) and Distinguished Professor at U of M. “They are deserving of this notable recognition and support.”
The University of Manitoba is proud to congratulate these six exceptional PhD students who now call the University of Manitoba home.
