In a recent Globe and Mail report, Brent Herbert-Copley, vice-president of Research Capacity at the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) outlines the rapid growth of scholarships and fellowships awarded to those studying our environment.

According to Herbert-Copley, “SSHRC funds only about 20 per cent of applicants, or 5 per cent of all graduate students enrolled in the social sciences and humanities at Canadian universities. So by all accounts, these are among the best and brightest in their fields, representing opinion leaders of tomorrow.”

He goes on to state that, “[t]he distribution of awards reflects some of the key changes at work in academia… much of the growth is in newer, cross-disciplinary fields like communications and media studies, or urban, regional and environmental studies.”
