Andréanne Veillette, an incoming PhD student in Ethics and Public Affairs (EPAF), says she could hardly believe it when she found out that she had won a Vanier Graduate Student Scholarship. This prestigious scholarship is awarded to Canadian PhD students who conduct exceptional research. It is valued at $50,000 per year for three years during a student’s doctoral studies. She is one of two Carleton University students to win the award this year.

“I had to re-read the offer letter several times before it actually sunk in that I’d won,” shares Veillette. “I lifted my head to tell my boyfriend but he already knew from the look on my face. Then, I called my parents who have always been incredibly supportive of me to share the amazing news that I’d won.”
