A huge round of applause goes out to Psychology Research Specialist graduand, Alyssa Sinclair. Alyssa is the recipient of THREE significant awards.
1. The Governor General's Academic Medal: This award was first presented in 1873 by the Earl of Dufferin, and has since become one of the most prestigious awards that a student in a Canadian educational institution can receive. The silver medal is awarded to an undergraduate student who achieves the highest academic standing upon graduation from a bachelor's degree program. Alyssa is one of three medal recipients awarded at U of T.
2. The John Black Aird Scholarship: This was established in 1996 in memory of the Honourable John Black Aird, former chancellor of the University of Toronto and Lieutenant-Governor of Ontario, and is awarded to the most outstanding student graduating from an undergraduate program.
3. The Rose Sheinin Award: Since 1995, this award has been presented to the most outstanding female student graduating in a science program.
Alyssa is graduating this month and will spend the summer working with the Psychology Department as a recipient of an NSERC award. Congratulations, Alyssa, on the work you have done and on these impressive awards. Read more about Allie Sinclair's journey at U of T in the UofT News.
