A student of the Chair obtains a doctoral study scholarship from the Canadian Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (May 2019)

Themes: Award Students

The Joseph Armand Bombardier Canada Graduate Scholarship, awarded by the Canadian Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council, is granted to students based on the overall quality of their work performance. Over and beyond the academic aspect, the council’s evaluation takes into account: publications, oral presentations, other scholarships and prizes won, work experience and engagements and the pertinence of the doctoral project itself.

Roxane Leboeuf is interested in mistreatment that may emerge among older adults living in private (for profit) residences. Within the framework of her doctoral thesis, she seeks to understand the ways in which such situations arise and how they are prevented or resolved. In addition to drawing up a model illustrating these processes, she intends to propose action cues that will eventually improve the practices of countering mistreatment among older adults in private residences.

The Chair’s entire team congratulates her on this wonderful accomplishment!
