It is with great pleasure that we announce that Andrea Deschênes obtained the prestigious Joseph-Armand Bombardier’s postgraduate Canadian scholarship from the Council of Human Sciences Research (SSHRC). This 35,000$ per year scholarship supports students who obtained excellent results in their undergraduate and graduate studies in human sciences who also demonstrated an outstanding potential in research in hope to further develop their skills. In addition to being a member of LPVS-UQO, Andrea is co-directed by Hélène Forget, director of the Laboratory of Psychoneuroendocrinological Analysis of Stress and Health. In her research, Andrea uses psychophysical and social cognition methods to investigate the impact of moderate psychosocial stress on social judgments.
Again this year, several students of the laboratory have distinguished themselves in scholarship contests from major granting agencies.
At the doctoral level, Youna Dion Marcoux (also supervised by Hélène Forget) received the Fonds de Recherche Québécois – Nature et Technologies (FRQNT) for her research on the impact of age on visual strategies used in recognition of facial expressions.
At the Masters level, Camille Saumaure and Adrianne Pauzé (co-supervised by Caroline Cyr) also received FRQNT scholarships.
In addition, the laboratory will welcome several undergraduate students who received summer scholarships. Gabrielle Dugas, Dominic Mongrain, Marie-Pier-Plouffe-Demers and Camille Saumure Regimbald each received a summer scholarship from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC), while Michaël N’Guiamba received a summer scholarship from the Fonds de Recherche Québécois – Société et Culture (FRQSC).
Congratulations to the recipients! We wish you a productive year!!!
Congratulations to Camille, who is finally all grown up! She has officially been accepted to the doctoral program in Clinical Neuropsychology, under the supervision of Caroline Blais and Daniel Fiset. Her research project will be supported by a scholarship from the Fonds Québécois de Recherche en Nature et Technologie (FRQNT). Her new adventure will begin in September 2016.
Once again, GREAT JOB Camille, from the whole team at the LPVS-UQO. Your continuous efforts have been well rewarded 🙂
