SUNLAB students awarded scholarships


Congratulations to SUNLAB students Louis Béchard, Patrick McVey White, Meghan Beattie and Ross Cheriton on receiving scholarships for 2016-2017.

Both Louis Béchard and Patrick McVey White, master’s students at the SUNLAB, have been awarded a prestigious Alexander Graham Bell Canada Graduate Scholarship from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada. The program’s objective is to help develop research skills and assist in the training of highly qualified personnel by supporting students who demonstrate a high standard of achievement in undergraduate and early graduate studies. The support will allow Louis to fully concentrate on his master’s studies and Patrick to start his doctoral studies.

Meghan Beattie, a master’s student, and Ross Cheriton, a doctoral student, have been awarded Ontario Graduate Scholarships (OGS). OGS awards are merit-based scholarships available to students in all disciplines of academic study. The OGS program is jointly funded by the Province of Ontario and Ontario universities.
