Society for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education (STLHE) and 3M Canada are proud to announce a unique new undergraduate award--The 3M National Student Fellowships--awarding $5,000 to ten full-time Canadian college and undergraduate university students to recognize their outstanding leadership qualities and achievements in advancing student learning. "The Student Fellowship" is the first in Canada to build community among visionary student leaders whose voices will shape tomorrow's future in post-secondary education, says Arshad Ahmad, STLHE President.
The Fellowship builds on a 27-year partnership between 3M Canada and STLHE and marks an exciting beginning for students across Canada to distinguish themselves as part of a unique learning community.
