Tahnee Prior, a global governance PhD student at the Balsillie School of International Affairs, hopes to define a new governance framework that will address the emerging and complex issues caused by climate change, resource extraction, migration and potential inter state conflict in the Arctic.

Trudeau Foundation Scholarships are the most prestigious award in Canada for doctoral students in the humanities and social sciences. Only 15 fellowships are given out nationally each year.

“This award is a shining example of how students at Waterloo apply a Canadian perspective to a complex problem in search of an outcome the whole world can use,” said Feridun Hamdullahpur, president and vice chancellor at the University of Waterloo. “Our entire community is enormously proud of Tahnee’s accomplishments she stands with elite company as a Trudeau Scholar.”

With an annual value of up to $60,000 for a maximum of three years, the award also includes a mentorship component, and a separate annual travel allowance to support research related travel and cover other networking, professional development and dissemination expenses.

“The Trudeau Foundation provides a tremendous platform to share cheap nfl jerseys our interdisciplinary research, to collaborate with other researchers and, pushes us to engage with and translate our findings to the broader public,” said Prior. “This award allows me to do more in depth empirical research in the circumpolar north, a crucial component of my doctoral work and a big obstacle for many Arctic social scientists today.”

Working under the supervision of Professor Neil Craik cheap jerseys of the Faculty of Environment at Waterloo, Prior’s highly interdisciplinary research draws on complexity theory, environmental law, and the broader field of global governance in the Arctic.

Beyond her PhD work, Prior is a team member on Human Security as a Promotional tool for Societal Security in the Arctic, is a research assistant working on EU Canada Arctic Strategies, and is collaborating with other Arctic scholars to develop a platform where individuals can share their research on women in the Arctic.

“Ms. Prior’s work is a wonderful example of the leading edge interdisciplinary research that our students are engaged in,” said John Ravenhill, director of the Balsillie School of International Affairs. “Her research is not only novel in its approach, but has the potential to influence significantly international cooperation in the world’s most ecologically sensitive regions.”

This is the second Trudeau Scholarship awarded to a doctoral student at the University of Waterloo since the start of the program in 2003. Then doctoral studentNora Doerr MacEwenreceived the prestigious award in 2004.

The UWSA traces its roots to wholesale jerseys October 23, 1969, when approximately 100 staff members gathered at the Glenbriar Curling Club to discuss the notion of forming an association. A steering committee was formed, which, after getting organized, arranged for a general staff meeting to be held on November 10, 1969. At that meeting, an executive committee was elected and work began on a constitution, the draft of which was introduced on March 17, 1970. Members of the association adopted the official constitution on April 21, 1970. By June of that year, the UWSA had held its first Annual General Meeting and elected its first full term executive committee, which appointed chairs and standing committees, which were staffed by volunteers.

On July 30, 1973, the UWSA became a not for profit organization. By February 1975, the UWSA had reached a membership level of over 50 per cent of staff members, which prompted then President Burt Matthews to pen a letter of congratulations that acknowledged the association’s growing role in University decision making.

The UWSA offers services including staff advocacy, career services, scholarships and grants, and a wide variety of discounts from partnering businesses.
