CEEP Scholarship Recipients Announced

On behalf of the Canisius Earning Excellence Program (CEEP) Review and Recommendation Committee, Jenn Lodi-Smith, PhD, assistant vice president for Academic Affairs, is pleased to announce the recipients of the 2021-22 CEEP Scholarships. CEEP is an exciting learning and earning opportunity that pairs students with Canisius faculty for educational and rewarding experiences. These positions are intellectually demanding, create opportunities for applied learning outside the classroom, are closely related to a career or scholarly field and directly related to faculty scholarship. By working with faculty on research-focused projects, students are able to achieve a high level of preparedness for maintaining professional working relationships and for continued studies at the graduate level.

The scholarships were granted to 69 students with 34 faculty members serving as mentors. Click here to view the list of this year’s recipients, faculty mentors and their projects.

Congratulations to all the recipients!
