I received my second small award from Concordia University! The recognition and monetary assistance are both very much appreciated! The Keith Lowther Award is granted to one graduate student each semester based on community service and academic excellence. I’m currently volunteering as the Graduate History Student Association Treasurer at Concordia, and I helped plan this year’s history conference.
Last semester I received the Inge Thurm Bursary for Women’s or Gender History. My thesis work on early modern women’s needlework and their use of pattern books qualified me, in addition to my academic record. I used the award money toward my travel expenses for the conference in Manchester, England this summer.
I have updated my Resume page to reflect all of the awards and honors that I have received.
