Carleton University alumna Helen Thai (BCom /17, BA /20) has been chosen as one of just 20 winners of the inaugural McCall MacBain Scholarships, prestigious graduate studies scholarships funded by the McCall MacBain Foundation.

They provide funding for a master’s or professional degree, as well as an intensive leadership development program. Applicants are chosen based on their character, community engagement, leadership potential, entrepreneurial spirit, academic strength and intellectual curiosity.

Thai, who is a playwright with bachelor’s degrees in commerce and psychology, serves on the client advisory council of the Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre and represents students at the Canadian Psychological Association.

She plans to use the scholarship to pursue graduate studies in the clinical psychology program at McGill University. Her research will focus on motivation for recovery among those living with psychosis.
