Supporting our scholars. Encouraging excellence.
The 3M National Student Fellowship honours up to ten full-time college and undergraduate university students at Canadian institutions who have demonstrated outstanding leadership in their lives and at their college or university. These students embrace a vision of quality education that enhances their academic experience and beyond.
These awards are significant and we encourage you to share this information with relevant students as well as writing nomination letters or letters of support.
More information including eligibility, criteria and the detailed application process can be found on the Society for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education (STLHE) website.
It is important to note that after completing their nomination package applicants must submit their complete package in a single pdf file electronically, following the file naming protocol outlined by 3M, to the Vice-Provost (Student Experience), Dr. Susan Barker, for her review and statement no later than Tuesday, Jan. 24, 2017.
Packages submitted to Dr. Barker will be returned back to the applicants by Friday, Jan. 27, 2017 in order for the applicants to submit their entire packages as directed on the STLHE website on or before Tuesday, Jan. 31, 2017.
Awardees will be invited to the annual conference of the Society for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education (STLHE) in June, where they will participate in a 3M National Student Fellowship Program retreat and lead the closing plenary. Awardees will receive a contribution towards their cost of travel, accommodation during the conference, and conference registration. While at the conference, they will have the opportunity to develop a cohort-based collaborative project with the goal of enhancing teaching and learning at the post-secondary level. The cohort commits the year following their award to implementing and sustaining their project. A facilitator supports the cohort in the development, implementation and sustainability of their project and advises on synergies with STLHE SIGs and previous 3MNSF cohorts. Each recipient will also receive an award of $5,000 to be spent at their discretion.
