Emerging Leaders in the Social Economy Research Scholarship Program

This scholarship program is intended to promote original research by “emerging leaders” in the Social Economy. It is hoped that the scholarships will help advance knowledge for the sector and improve the capacity of successful candidates to further strengthen the Social Economy in their academic and practitioner sectors in Canada.

The program provides scholarships of up to $3,000 per recipient towards salary replacement, national/international travel, or other actual costs of conducting research and producing a research report for publication by CSEHub. Jody Bauche was the recipient of the first scholarship, announced in May, 2009. The second round of winners, announced November 2009, are: Melissa Fong, Emily McGiffin, Josina Vink and David Thompson.
