3M National Student Fellowships

3M National Student Fellowship logo.The call for applications for the 3M National Student Fellows was recently posted.  We are hoping that you can help us identify potential student applicants.   We are looking for students who are innovators, entrepreneurs, builders.  We are looking for students who saw a gap and filled it by creating something that didn’t exist before.  We are looking for students who are working in the margins, who are doing things despite the conditions they work in.  We are looking for students who have impacted positive change and helped solve problems in creative ways.  Students who fit this description may not come forward to nominate themselves but would apply if they were encouraged to do so. That is where you come in. 

Please help us to identify students who would be good candidates for the 3M National Student Fellowship, which recognizes visionary student leaders from across Canada who have demonstrated outstanding leadership and innovation by addressing current needs in higher education or society.   

 To be eligible, students must

  • be a current full-time diploma or undergraduate student at a Canadian postsecondary institution. 
  • have completed at least one full semester of study at the time of nomination (January 2023). 
  • be willing to submit a 15-page dossier (including reference letters) to the 3M selection committee by January 31, 2023. 

Award recipients receive $1000 and national recognition, in addition to other honours listed here: https://www.stlhe.ca/awards/3m-national-student-fellowship/
