Have you demonstrated outstanding leadership at UCalgary?

You should apply for a 3M National Student Fellowship

3M National Student Fellowship

The 3M National Student Fellowship honours up to ten full-time diploma and undergraduate students at Canadian post-secondary institutions who have demonstrated visionary leadership and innovation through seeing current needs in higher education or society and implementing change. 

What awardees receive

Recipients will become 3M National Student Fellows (see expectations for Fellows) and receive recognition at the annual Society for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education (STLHE) conference in June — as well as conference registration, travel to the conference and accommodations.

Each recipient will also receive an award of $1,000 to be spent at their discretion.

How to apply

More information including eligibility, criteria and the detailed application process can be found on the Society for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education website.

As part of the submission requirements, applicants must include a statement from the Vice-Provost (Student Experience).
