Troy Kenny, a Master of Social Work student, has won the Hilary M. Weston Scholarship for his outstanding research in the field of mental health.

Troy studies the impact of school connectedness and positive male mentorship on adolescent boys with depression. He received $7,500 to support his research.

“This scholarship was inspired by the empathy and compassion for others’ wellbeing that social workers embody, so that a new generation of young academics and social workers could lead the way in our understanding of mental illness,” said Hilary Weston, the former Lieutenant Governor of Ontario. “I am pleased we can support the work Troy is contributing to this important field.”
