We are happy to announce the Dr. Elizabeth Riddell-Dixon Graduate Scholarship. Made possible by an anonymous donor who wanted to honour Elizabeth’s fine research and teaching career, this generous award will be given annually to a full-time graduate student who is in a doctoral program in the Faculty of Social Science, based on academic achievement and research merit with preference given to students in Political Science. Candidates will be PhD students whose thesis research focuses on promoting one or more of the following: women’s human rights, women’s equality, women’s empowerment, and women’s full participation in decision-making in at least one level of governance. Through the Ontario Graduate Scholarship matching policy, this $5,000 scholarship will be worth a total of $15,000 for OGS winners.
