Congratulations are in order for Albensi Lab MSc student Chris Cadonic, whose application in the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) 2014 Canada Graduate Scholarships-Master’s competition has been selected for an award.
The prestigious CGS Program was established in 2003 by the Government of Canada, with scholarships being awarded through competition by the three federal granting agencies (CIHR, NSERC and SSHRC). The CGS Program aims to allow a greater number of excellent students to pursue graduate studies in Canada.
The award is the most recent in a remarkable list of awards in 2014 for Cadonic, which include a President’s Scholarship (University of Manitoba Graduate Fellowship), the Scottish Rite of Canada award, the Seahorse Bioscience Travel Award, the Faculty of Graduate Studies Travel award, and an award from the Joint Centre on Aging/Alzheimer Society.
