Congratulations to Bradley Feltham who was awarded a Canada Graduate Student (CGS) doctoral program scholarship, one of the most prestigious awards to promote continued excellence in Canadian research by rewarding and retaining high-calibre doctoral students at Canadian institutions. By providing support for a high-quality research training experience to awardees, this program strives to foster impacts within and beyond the research environment.
