Merelda Fiddler-Potter, a University of Regina doctoral student in the Johnson Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy (JSGS), has been awarded a prestigious Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarship valued at $150,000 over three years. "As a university community, we are committed to facing the difficult truths of our colonial past in order to work towards reconciliation," says Kathy McNutt, Interim Vice-President (Research) and Fiddler-Potter's thesis advisor at the University of Regina. "Merelda's research is the type of scholarship needed right now to support nationwide reconciliation efforts, and to position Canada as a global centre of excellence in research and in higher learning."
