Political Science PhD Alumni announced a 2017 CIFAR Azrieli Global Scholar!

Congratulations to former Political Science PhD graduate, Kristi Kenyon, who has been named as one of the fifteen early career researchers to receive the 2017 CIFAR Azrieli Global Scholar appointment!

The CIFAR Azrieli Global Scholars will join close to 400 of the world’s best researchers who are addressing some of the most interesting and important questions facing the world today. Each scholar will receive $100,000 in research support and become a part of one of CIFAR’s 12 research programs for two years. Scholars have the opportunity to be mentored by the world’s top researchers in their own area of research, and forge new collaborations with CIFAR fellows and other CIFAR Azrieli Global Scholars.

The program also supports the extension of their research beyond the usual academic boundaries by facilitating opportunities to exchange ideas with leading knowledge users across sectors, including policy-makers, business leaders and practitioners who may benefit from engaging with these outstanding young researchers.

The CIFAR Azrieli Global Scholars program is enabled by the generous support of the Azrieli Foundation, which funds scientific and medical research, higher education, youth empowerment and school perseverance, Holocaust education, music and the arts, architecture, and quality of life initiatives for people with developmental disabilities.
