Sister of Mercy of Newfoundland Honored
Trudeau Foundation - On November 30, 2006, Sister Elizabeth Davis was one of seven Canadians who were appointed as Trudeau Foundation mentors, individuals who work closely with outstanding doctoral candidates in the social sciences and humanities fields and who have been awarded Trudeau Scholarships. In announcing the appointments, the President of the Foundation noted that “these individuals have the ability to stand out as groundbreakers in their respective fields and transfer their remarkable experience, insight and enthusiasm to others.”
The Trudeau Foundation was established in 2002 with an endowment to honor the great humanitarian spirit of one of Canada’s former prime ministers, Pierre Elliot Trudeau. It provides fellowships to researchers, scholarships to gifted doctoral students and mentorships to outstanding professionals in the humanities and social sciences. The four key themes of the Foundation are human rights and social justice, responsible citizenship, Canada and the world, humans and their natural environment. The Foundation represents a neutral forum to address crucial societal issues and to foster a dialogue between scholars and policymakers in the arts community, business, government, the professions, and the voluntary sector.
