PhD (Nursing) student Leah Carrier has been selected as a recipient of the 2020 Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation’s PeT doctoral scholarship which aims to “help shape researchers into engaged leaders who are conscious of the impact of their research and connected to the realities of the communities in which they work….”. She is among a very select group of scholars picked from a pool of hundreds of candidates from universities in Canada and abroad.

This year the Foundation appointed 16 dynamic and diverse doctoral scholars who come from a broad array of academic backgrounds, in the social sciences and humanities, and communities across Canada and around the world.

The PeT doctoral scholarship program lasts for three years and provides generous support for scholars’ doctoral work in the form of a stipend and a research and travel allowance. “The research and travel allowance provided by the Foundation will facilitate the success of my dissertation project and opens the door for new possibilities to creatively sharing the knowledge that emerges from the research. I’m excited that this funding will provide resources that will benefit children and youth in community,” Leah says.
