UBC Forestry wishes to congratulate Samuel Adeyanju and Noa Mayer on being recipients of the Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarship (Vanier CGS)!
As a PhD Candidate at UBC Forestry, Samuel’s research interests are broadly focused on sustainability management of forests in Sub Saharan Africa. Samuel is receiving the Vanier Scholarship for his PhD work in Ghana, which seeks to understand the effectiveness of livelihood interventions in improving livelihoods within Community Resource Management Areas (CREMAs) by examining how interventions work, who they benefit or exclude, and obstacles to their effective implementation.
As a PhD student at UBC Forestry, Noa’s research focuses on the intraspecific variation in the thermal tolerance of Kokanee salmon and the use of aerobic scope as a tool for determining population-specific capacity to withstand climate-induced increases in freshwater temperatures.
Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarship
The Vanier CGS program awards up to $50,000 per year for three years, for students working in social sciences and humanities, natural sciences, engineering, and health. This year, 166 doctoral students across Canada received Vanier Scholarships, 18 of them being UBC students.
