The 3M National Student Fellowship Award was introduced in 2012 to honour undergraduate students in Canada who have demonstrated qualities of outstanding leadership and who embrace a vision where the quality of their educational experience can be enhanced in academia and beyond. Each candidate provided us with their definition of leadership in the context of his or her educational experience. We also asked applicants to explain why they aspired to leadership roles and to share a challenge in post-secondary education along with a proposed solution.
This award acknowledges full-time students at Canadian post-secondary institutions who have demonstrated outstanding leadership in their lives, and at their post-secondary institution. These students embrace a vision of education that enhances their academic experience and beyond.
This partnership between 3M Canada and STLHE is an exciting opportunity for students across Canada to distinguish themselves as part of a unique learning community.
Each of the ten fellows receives a $5,000 award, registration at the STLHE conference, this year hosted by University of Manitoba, Red River College, and the Université de Saint Boniface, participation in a day-long retreat held in Winnipeg, Manitoba as well as accommodation and funds towards travel to the conference. They are invited to take part in a collaborative project related to post-secondary education.
This year’s cohort of 3M National Student Fellows continues the legacy that began in 2012 – a legacy that we know will assist many future years of undergraduate students across Canada.
