Sauvé Scholars Program Awardee (2009)

Sauvé Scholars Program Awardee (2009)

My experience as a Sauvé Scholar in Montreal was really defining for me. The Sauvé Scholarship is a residential fellowship, named after Jean Sauvé, the first Canadian woman governor general. The program brings thirteen young global leaders to Montreal for a year of intensive academic, professional and personal development. Throughout the year, we lived together in a beautifully restored mansion and were graduate research trainees at McGill University, which gave us the incredible opportunity to get acquainted with McGill and its great research facilities. We enjoyed unlimited access to McGill University’s academic programs and other resources – including lectures, conferences and events suited to the advancement of our individual professional and intellectual goals. I took classes in a variety of departments, such as the business school and the school of social work in which I had the opportunity to benefit from the quality education at McGill. Additionally, we were able to pick an academic mentor, a faculty member from the university, who guided us throughout the year.
