Announcement of the Winners: PPX-COG Research Excellence Scholarship

The Centre on Governance (COG), in partnership with the Performance and Planning Forum - Performance and Planning Exchange (PPX), continues its mission to encourage excellence in academic research in the areas of program planning, performance measurement and evaluation. For the academic year 2020-2021, two scholarships are awarded to two students, members of the COG. These scholarships, worth $3,000, are awarded to the winners of the competition to conduct their doctoral research, prepare a scientific paper, or participate in academic conferences on program planning, performance and evaluation. Recipients will present their research to a non-academic audience or through the dissemination of a research note at one of the events organized by the PPX. Recipients for the year 2020-2021 are:

Pauliana Borgella, Ph.D. student in Public Administration under the supervision of Professor Éric Champagne for a project entitled: L’utilisation de l’évaluation de programmes comme outil d’amélioration des politiques publiques : le cas d’Haïti (Using program evaluation as a tool for improving public policies: the case of Haiti).

This is part of a broader plan to support and mobilize the capacity of early-career professors and graduate students, members of the Centre on Governance (COG).

Two students from the School of Political Studies receive a Federalism Scholarship!

We are happy to announce the recipients of the Doctoral Scholarship on federalism.

This $8,000 scholarship supports research on federalism by helping students produce important work in the fields of federalism studies and multi-level governance.

The 2021 recipients are:

This project is supervised by Professor Benjamin Ferland from the School of Political Studies.

Her research looks at Policy Networks and Multi-level Cooperation in the Implementation of Digital Government Policies.
