Fourth-year Bachelor of Journalism student, Pascale Malenfant, has been named a Carleton University Provost Scholar.

Funded by the Office of the Provost and Vice-President (Academic) and administered by Teaching and Learning Services, the Provost Scholar Award is valued at $1,000 and is given to undergraduate students who have demonstrated outstanding achievements in research, community engagement, immersive learning and/or international activities.

Malenfant was one of the ten students who won the prestigious award this year. Malenfant is a journalism student who has exceptional personal presence, outstanding academic performance and a notable social conscience. She is the Chair of the Charlatan and President of the Carleton University Journalism Society, where she introduced philanthropic programming to the society’s activities, which included an equipment fund that provided over $1,000 to students in need and a Mental Wellness Week. Two of her journalism research projects won national recognition and/or were published by major outlets. Last year, she also received a Medal of Excellence from former Veterans Affairs Deputy Minister Walter Natynczyk for her research on underrepresented Canadian soldiers of the First World War. Outside of Carleton, she volunteers to tutor underprivileged primary and elementary students, taking a special interest in refugee children’s literacy and math-related studies and their adjustment to new lives in Canada.
