Bailey Gerrits, PhD candidate

The department is delighted to announce that Bailey Gerrits has been awarded the prestigious Trudeau Scholarship.  Bailey is one of 16 recipients to receive the scholarship this year. She is the fourth Queen's graduate student to have received one since its inception - two of the other three were from our department.  The scholarship is tenable for up to four years.  This is a very impressive achievement for Bailey; and our record of winners of this scholarship speaks to the high level of graduate students we are able to attract and the calibre of their work.  

“The award is a huge confidence boost in my research and it really motivates me to continue my work,” says Ms. Gerrits. “The fact that I know people have to live in these conditions also motivates me to continue.” Read here for full story.
