McGill receives $15M for doctoral fellowships

January 18, 2019

Les and Judy Vadasz have donated $15M toward doctoral fellowships at McGill University’s Faculty of Engineering. A McGill release states that the new Vadasz Doctoral Fellowships in Engineering will support up to 60 doctoral students at a time over a four-year cohort, including 15 new recipients each year. “The Fellowships create multiple benefits,” said Jim Nicell, Dean of McGill’s Faculty of Engineering. “They bring outstanding students to McGill who receive an excellent education, and help drive research in the Faculty. Doctoral students are required to make significant contributions in their area of research. And because they’re working on their PhD, they’re pushing the research agenda of the professors and University much further.” McGill (QC)
