Meet the 2020 P2GS Scholars

Graduate Studies

Pathway to Graduate Studies Scholars participate in science education during the morning and in a paid research program under the supervision of a UWinnipeg faculty member during the afternoon throughout the four week program. Students are introduced to research opportunities in the NSE fields and to continue pursuing their interests in undergraduate programs and eventually into graduate programs.

Tansi, my name is Standing Bear. I come from Grand Rapids Cree Nation, and I am a third year kinesiology student. I am working toward a degree in Kinesiology, because I want to explore methods of improvement and maintenance of physical health standards and of First Nations youth in my community.

Gabrielle GlowatskyGabrielle Glowatsky


Niin Gabrielle Glowatsky nindizhinikaaz: Hello! My name is Gabrielle Glowatsky. I am an Ojibwe student working towards a BSc, with an interest in Veterinarian Medicine. I hope to one day be able to provide veterinarian medicine to remote communities across Turtle Island. I am also very interested in both science as well as the language programs for Ojibwe and Cree here at UofW. I hope to have a clinic, or be a part of a clinic for animals that we can understand and speak the languages of our peoples, while providing education for animal welfare.

Ashely KingAshley King

My name is Ashley King and I am a Metis student at the University of Winnipeg. I am taking a degree in neuroscience and have always been interested in learning about the brain and how it works. This is a great opportunity to get hands-on experience in the field I one day want to be a part of, as well as making connections with other students who are interested in the sciences.

Silas Richard Sean Legget

My name is Silas Leggett and I am a 17 years old Metis. I will be graduating from the University of Winnipeg Colligate (April 2020) and staying at the U of W to begin a science degree in the fall of 2020. I’ve worked with the Winnipeg Newcomers Soccer Association for 4 years now and getting accepted to this program is a great opportunity to gain more work experience. While in the P2GS program I’ll be looking forward to furthering my education at a higher level and take part in research projects with professors. I am interested to see how working under a researcher will help me narrow down what I want to do later on in life and advance my knowledge leading into university. My biggest hope is that the Pathway to Graduate Studies program helps me prepare for university in a different way than high school has.

Silas will be working with Dr. Md Shakhawat Hossain.
