3M National Student Fellowship

Do you know undergraduate and diploma students who demonstrate qualities of outstanding leadership in their lives and at their post-secondary institution? If so, please consider nominating one or more students for the 3M National Student Fellowship.

Each year, 3M and the Society for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education (STLHE) honour up to ten full-time diploma and undergraduate students. These students embrace a vision of education that enhances their academic experience and beyond.

The award is open to undergraduate and diploma students who are enrolled full-time in a post-secondary Canadian institution, have completed at least one full semester of study at the time of nomination, and have not previously received a 3M student fellowship.
