Two of our Philosophy department PhD students, Ashley Keefner and Sara Weaver, each won a Bombardier Canada Graduate Scholarship (CGS) from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) in the 2013-14 competition. These are extremely competitive and prestigious awards. According to SSHRC's statistics, in this round, only seven CGSs were awarded to PhD students here at Waterloo and only eighteen were awarded to philosophy PhD students nationally. The entire Waterloo philosophy community congratulates Sara and Ashley on their amazing accomplishments.
