PhD Student Danielle McNabb is Awarded Nelson Mandela Honorary Title

Congratulations to PhD student Danielle McNabb for being one of only 10 doctoral Canada Graduate Scholarship (CGS) recipients to be awarded a 2021 "Nelson Mandela Honourary Title" for her research on democracy and legal interventions at the Supreme Court of Canada.

According to SSHRC/CRSH, "These honourary titles seek to recognize and support CGS-funded graduate students conducting research in one or more of five areas championed by Nelson Mandela: national unity; democracy, freedom and human rights; leadership; children’s participation in society; and children’s health. Ten doctoral-level students were selected to receive this honorary title from amongst the highest ranked candidates in the CGS Doctoral competition. As a recipient, [the] initial CGS award will now include “to Honour Nelson Mandela” in its title, and will apply for the duration of [the] award."
