"I am very grateful to receive the Lana Brown and Vana Kirby Graduate Scholarship. I would not be able to receive this scholarship without the support of my family, friends, my colleagues and faculty members at the Arthur V. Mauro Institute for Peace & Justice and Menno Simons College, particularly my advisor Dr. Adam Muller. This scholarship has significantly lightened my financial burden, especially during COVID-19, so I can focus on my learning, research, and community involvement."
