Karlee Sapoznik awarded the Provost Dissertation Scholarship

The Department of History congratulates Graduate History Program doctoral candidate Karlee Sapoznik, who was awarded the newly created Provost Dissertation Scholarship. This award allows students going into their fifth year of their PhD to concentrate exclusive on writing and competing their dissertations. Only ten were awarded across the university. Karlee has a long string of accomplishments that both demonstrate her impressive array of skills and her great intellectual promise. She has turned her MA Major Research Paper into a book that is accepted for publication by Princeton University Press. She has published three academic articles on widely divergent topics (one from her BA research) and has authored curriculum for Manitoba’s Board of Education. In her spare time Ms. Sapoznik has founded a major national charitable organization: the Alliance Against Modern Slavery. For more information see http://allianceagainstmodernslavery.org
