Three Queen's doctoral students have received Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarships form the Government of Canada, Kryslte Maki, Dianna Lanteigne and Andreas Reichelt will each receive $50,000 annually for up to three years.
Ms. Maki completed her masters in sociology at Queen's under the supervision of Professor Laureen Snider. She is currently working on her PhD under the supervision of Professor Catherine Krull and Professor Margaret Little. Krystle's work will explore the uncharted relationship between Ontario Works (OW) and surveillance and its affects on recipients, service providers and community advocacy groups. Her project will build upon her Master's thesis, 'Guilty Until Proven Eligible: Welfare Surveillance of Single Mothers in Ontario' (2009), in which Krysle analyzed eight surveillance practices administered by OW uncovered in welfare legislation, regulations, acts and policies.
