The 3M National Student Fellowship honours up to ten full-time college and undergraduate university students at Canadian institutions who have demonstrated outstanding leadership in their lives and at their college or university. These students embrace a vision of quality education that enhances their academic experience and beyond.

Nature of Award

Each cohort member will receive an award of $5,000 to be spent at their discretion. Further, each cohort member will be invited to join the others at the annual conference of the Society for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education (STLHE) in June, where they will also participate in a 3M National Student Fellowship Program retreat. Awardees will receive a contribution towards their cost of travel to and accommodation during the conference. While at the conference, they will have the opportunity to develop a cross-Canadian collaborative project with other cohort members with the goal of enhancing teaching and learning at the post-secondary level.
