The 2001 RISE Scholars

Eleven RISE Scholarships were awarded in 2000/01.  The 2001 RISE Scholars are listed below, along with their home institutions and the institutions at which their awards were held. Ten of the students were also awarded NSERC Undergraduate Student Research Awards, while the student at NRC was awarded an NRC Summer Studentship.  These awards are held concurrently with the RISE Scholarships.
