Julie Bérubé, a PhD in Administration student since fall 2008, has received a Vanier Scholarship from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) in the 2009-2010 competition, worth $50,000 per year for three years.
This substantial assistance comes on top of the doctoral scholarship she received from the Fonds québécois de la recherche sur la société et la culture (FQRSC) for 2009-2010. The SSHRC also awarded her a scholarship during her Master’s studies at the Université du Québec en Outaouais, where she received a citation for excellence from the Dean.
Julie’s thesis, directed by Christiane Demers, Full Professor with the Department of Management, theorizes an analysis model of success criteria for small businesses according to organization theories and strategies.
Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarships, of which 166 were awarded this year, are designed to attract and retain world-class doctoral students. They are awarded by the three federal granting agencies – the SSHRC, the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) – to students who have demonstrated leadership skills and remarkable scientific achievements in their graduate studies. Julie received one of the 55 Vanier Scholarships awarded by the SSHRC.
These federal scholarships were awarded for the first time in 2009-2010.
