Dr. Andrew Brook founded the Institute of Cognitive Science and continues to be heavily involved in the graduate program. He has supported the Cognitive Science Graduate Scholarship for many years. Many (if not all) of the Ph.D. students who graduated from our program worked with Andy during their studies. His vision remains a central feature of our program. We felt that it was time to recognize his support and ask our alumni, faculty, and other supporters to show their appreciation for his dedication by helping to grow the Cognitive Science Graduate Scholarship. This scholarship is awarded annually by the Dean of Graduate Studies and Research to an outstanding graduate student, entering or proceeding from one year to another, in the Cognitive Science program at Carleton University. Your support celebrates Andy’s vision means even more students can benefit from the fund each year.
Graduate students in the Institute of Cognitive Science are involved in many exciting research projects in areas that cover a wide range of topics. Every year we recognize student excellence with one or more scholarships from this fund. We’d like to support even more of our students and Giving Tuesday seems like a great opportunity to reach out. Cognitive Science at Carleton is all about collaboration across many different disciplines – let’s collaborate to support our students!
The funds we raise will be added to the Cognitive Science Graduate Scholarship, allowing us to support more students. We hope to raise $5,000-10,000 in this campaign.
One of the biggest impediments to students’ progress is financial strain. Scholarships can help them in many ways, by providing support for conference travel, allowing them to spend more time on their research, or simply relieving them of the additional worry about funding.
