Hey, a new story by yours truly!

11May09

This one is at University Affairs, and it’s about the first crop of Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarship recipients. There are 165 of them, so far, and they each get $50,000 a year for a few years. That’s a lot of money, if you ask me.

The problem is that the program is supposed to attract leading scholars from around the world, a la Rhodes or Fulbright. And most of the recipients this time around, whether they were domestic or international students, already study in Canada. So there was little Vanier recruitment.

Have no fear, though. The outlook is good for international recruitment in coming years.

University Affairs has more on the scholarships here.
