The International Institute for Child Rights and Development would like to congratulate several  scholar-practitioners for receiving awards to improve the lives of children, including: 

  • Richard Wamimbi, Royal Roads University, Doctoral Candidate of Social Sciences, recieves International Development Research Centre (IDRC) Doctoral Research Award
  • Laura Wright, Royal Roads University, Master's Candidate for Global Leadership, receives Social Science Human Research Council Master's Fellowship
  • Gehan El Sharkawy, Royal Roads University, Doctoral Candidate of Social Sciences

In October 2015, Gehan was sponsored to participate in a competitive mentorship program that is organized by the Arab Families Working Group. A group of reputable and experienced researchers provide one-on-one support to the mentees for nearly a year, and some are chosen to receive seed funding to conduct field research. 

IICRD's Dr. Cheryl Heykoop was also accepted into Banff Centre's Getting to Maybe: A Social Innovation Residency, also co-facilitated by Associate Dr. Julian Norris.

Stepping boldly into leading with children and youth to create a better future for us all.
