Student Receives Bank of Canada Scholarship
The Mathematics & Statistics student will receive a $10,000 scholarship and will work as a Summer Research Assistant in the Bank of Canada's Currency Department.
"I have been interested in working at the Bank of Canada for a while and was browsing their careers section when I came across the scholarship application," says Katrina. "It seemed perfectly aligned with my interests and goals, so I just went for it."
Katrina is one of 13 university students receiving scholarships from the Bank of Canada. The scholarships are designed to encourage Canadians from diverse backgrounds to further their education and consider employment in fields related to the work of the Bank of Canada.
"This award is a huge honour," says Katrina. "It truly is a result of the experiences and support I have had from McMaster and elsewhere. It means a lot to receive an award that recognizes the importance of diversity in the workplace and encourages women to be ambitious. I am more motivated than ever to continue pursuing my academic and professional goals."
