The 3M National Award for Excellence for Students was created in 2012 to recognize Canada’s undergraduate students who have demonstrated exceptional leadership qualities and who have adopted a vision to enhance the quality of their experience, at the university itself and beyond. Applicants provided a definition of leadership in the context of their personal academic experience. We also asked candidates to explain to us why they aspire to take a leadership role and share the challenges in post-secondary education, and to suggest solutions.
The award is open to undergraduate students enrolled full-time at a Canadian university or college who are neither in the first year nor the last year of their program of study.
This partnership between 3M Canada and SAPES is an excellent opportunity for students from across Canada to stand out and join a unique learning community.
Each of the ten winners receives a $ 5,000 bursary, registration for the STLHE annual conference, which will be hosted this year by Simon Fraser University and the University of British Columbia, participation in a one day retreat to be held in Vancouver, British Columbia, as well as accommodation and a grant to cover transportation costs to get to the conference. Winners will be invited to participate in a collaborative project related to post-secondary education.
This year’s recipient group will continue the legacy that began in 2012 and which we are sure will help many undergraduates across Canada in the years to come.
