Kelsey Pennanen (PhD student) was awarded the very prestigious Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation Scholarship. This three-year scholarship program is designed to train Engaged Leaders, equipping outstanding doctoral candidates with the tools to share and apply their research and be creative leaders in their institutions and communities.

Not only a financial scholarship,The Foundation fosters the development of Engaged Leadership skills through a three-year program centered on curriculum taught by Fellows and Mentors in settings that take Scholars outside of a traditional university setting. By working alongside others who have a diversity of perspectives and come from different backgrounds, Scholars learn leadership by stepping outside their comfort zone.
