The 2007 RISE Scholars

Fourteen RISE Scholarships were awarded in 2006/07.  The 2007 RISE Scholars are listed below, along with their home institutions and the institutions at which their awards were held. Several 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.
