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.
