The awards total over $167,000 and will be used to build knowledge and understanding about people, societies and the world.
Dr. Stephanie Gilbert was awarded $60,223 for her work Women in leadership: The influence of stereotype threat and motivation for transformational leadership on leadership aspirations and emergence; Dr. Kathy Snow was awarded $69,713 for her work Ajurnaqtut Aniguinnasuut: Turning Grief into Empowerment; and Dr. Leslie Wardley was awarded $38,274 for her work Assessment of efficiency in Ontario universities using data envelopment analysis.
