Three UWindsor students among national finalists in competition to highlight research impact

Three University of Windsor doctoral candidates are finalists in a national competition to show how research in social sciences and humanities is making a difference in the lives of Canadians.

Congratulations on the advancement in the SSHRC Storytellers competition go to Sara Santarossa of the Faculty of Human Kinetics and psychology students Renée Taylor and Kathleen Wilson who have each won $3,000 and a berth in the next round of competition in the Storytellers contest sponsored by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada. 

The outstanding videos of the UWindsor finalists showcase the high quality of their research and ability to communicate in an engaging manner.

Given the exceptional circumstances caused by the global COVID-19 pandemic, and the requirement of the Storytellers competition that finalists communicate their research in front of a live audience, SSHRC has postponed the showcase to the 2021 Congress of the Humanities and Social Sciences, set for May 29 to June 4, 2021, at the University of Alberta. The final five winners chosen at that event will be featured at SSHRC’s Impact Awards ceremony, to be held in Fall 2021.
