Congratulations to Rebeccah Nelems, Trudeau Scholar!

Congratulations to Rebeccah Nelems, PhD candidate, who is one of only 16 Canadian doctoral students receiving a three year scholarship, a $180,000 award from the Pierre Elliot Trudeau Foundation,   Rebeccah's research will explore and compare youth conceptions of empathy alongside an examination of how empathy is increasingly being taught in Canadian schools. Her research will also consider what empathy as a social good can mean at this particular juncture in Canadian history.  For more information, here is the media release from the University of Victoria as well as the announcement from the Pierre Elliot Trudeau Foundation.
