Congratulations to Shane Norris in our Seventh Cohort who is this year’s recipient of the MPNL Alumni Award.  This award was created by alumni from our Fourth Cohort to champion and assist future students in the program.

Shane is honoured to receive this award:

Thank you so much to the collection of graduates and alumni of Carleton University’s Master’s in Philanthropy and Non Profit Leadership Program for establishing and contributing to the MPNL Alumni Award Scholarship program. As the recipient of this award and scholarship for the 7th cohort of the MPNL program in 2019, I am so very honoured and inspired to be recognized for both academic promise and past academic achievement from such an experienced, gifted, talented and professional group of fellow students and colleagues. The scholarship is more than just recognition of reflective hard work and scholarly accomplishment as the financial award contributes greatly to enabling the pursuit of post graduate education. The financial award has impact beyond the dollar figure as it allows for focused and diligent study by alleviating the stress and pressure of balancing work and academia throughout the program. Through this award, the culture of philanthropy truly materializes between those that contribute and those that receive.  My hope is to carry forward this gracious and giving culture throughout my studies in the program. Through thoughtful and attentive study and by learning from such a knowledgeable and professional ensemble of colleagues, instructors, staff, and fellow students my participation in the MPNL program is greatly enriched through the MPNL Alumni Award.  Thank you so very much.
