The Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation announced today that Sara Angel was one of the 15 recipients to win a 2012 Trudeau Foundation Scholarship, the most prestigious doctoral award of its kind in Canada. The scholarship “supports brilliant social sciences and humanities doctoral students who are focused on researching and sharing innovative ideas that will help solve issues of critical importance to Canadians.”

In addition to a generous $60,000 grant (given annually for a three-year period), the 15 Trudeau scholars benefit from the shared expertise and knowledge of the Trudeau fellows and mentors. This outstanding intergenerational and interdisciplinary group of recognized Canadian academic and non-academic leaders interacts regularly with the Trudeau scholars one-on-one, as well as through public policy networks, and at public forums hosted by the Foundation throughout the year.

“This group of students demonstrates a remarkable engagement and an immense curiosity for the current state of the world,” says Foundation President P.G. Forest. “The Trudeau scholarship will enable them to act upon their lively interest.”
