Each year, the Department of Criminology and the University of Ottawa offer the Chuck Talbot Scholarship to students in the French and English programs who have made remarkable contributions during their field placements. Scholarship candidates were nominated by their field supervisors and were then invited, alongside their classmates, to support the nomination.
This year, nine students were nominated: Ashley Broom (John Howard Society – Windrose Supportive Housing), Julian Velazquez (Batshaw Youth and Family Centres), Emily Panciuk (John Howard Society – Community Housing and Homelessness Team), Holiday Bogaert (Collaborative Justice Program), Morgan Hodgson (Parole Board of Canada), Szilvia Spadaccini (Ontario Probation and Parole Services), Delaney Bell (Rideauwood Addictions and Family Services – Ottawa Drug Treatment Court), Kaitlyn O’Bonsawin (Collaborative Justice Program), and Anna Sika (Agence Sociale Spécialisée de l’Outaouais).
Given the unprecedented number of nominations this year, it is our great pleasure to award the Chuck Talbot Scholarship to two students from each cohort. Please join us in congratulating Ashley Broom and Delaney Bell from the Anglophone cohort, and Kaitlyn O’Bonsawin and Anna Sika from the Francophone cohort!
