Congratulations 2019 Vanier Scholar Recipient Kyle Monkman

Congratulations to Kyle Monkman, a student in the department of physics and astronomy, one of a record six University of Manitoba graduate students to receive a 2019 Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarship.

These awards, considered the Canadian equivalent of the United Kingdom’s Rhodes Scholarships, help recruit and keep in Canada top doctoral students from across the country and around the world. Each recipient will receive $150,000 over three years towards his or her research and this is the largest contingent of Vanier scholars ever announced by the U of M.

“These six students are emerging research leaders that are undertaking an impressive level and scope of studies,” said Digvir Jayas, vice-president (research and international) and Distinguished Professor at U of M. “They are deserving of this notable recognition and support.”

The University of Manitoba is proud to congratulate these six exceptional PhD students who now call the University of Manitoba home.
