In honour of our 5 year anniversary, we have awarded 2 scholarships!

For 2023, we are pleased to award two scholarships: to Rebecca Dib, an incoming Doctor of Dental Surgery student at the University of Toronto, and to Paulina Hart, a Masters in Neuroscience student at the University of Calgary.

Congratulations to Rebecca Dib

Rebecca will be pursing her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree in the fall of 2023 at the University of Toronto. After completing her program, she hopes to pursue further study and research into orthodontics and pediatric dentistry as well as get involved in outreach projects to offer dental services to those in need. Rebecca completed her Bachelor of Science (Honours Specialization in Physiology and Pharmacology) at Western University. While at Western, she was a student leader and in her role as Director of Events for the Women in STEM club, Rebecca organized 100 women to travel to Toronto to visit STEM-based companies in order to make connections with those in the field and seek future opportunities.

Paulina is pursuing her Masters of Science in Neuroscience, where she is a part of the Calgary Pediatric Stroke Program at the Alberta Children’s Hospital on the world’s largest clinical trial of brain stimulation in children with perinatal stroke (a stroke that occurs between 22 weeks’ gestation and the first weeks of an infant’s life). Her project aims to achieve a better understanding of differences in GABA, an important brain chemical involved in healthy motor function, to design better, personalized treatments to help kids disabled by perinatal stroke gain increased mobility. Paulina completed her Bachelor of Medical Science (Specialization in Pharmacology & Interdisciplinary Medical Sciences) at Western University. After her Masters, Paulina plans to utilize her Masters towards further research and go to medical school.
