Student Testimonials

Anne Lachance, Assistant Professor, Université de Moncton  (PhD Queens, 2021)
I received graduate student funding to attend the Annual Conference of the Canadian Political Science Association in 2018. This conference represents an important mark on my career path. It gave me the opportunity to meet other academics that I would not have met otherwise and who have been instrumental in helping me grow and blossom as a scholar. The paper I presented received insightful comments from my discussant and the other members of my panel and thanks to their suggestions, this paper was ultimately published in a leading academic journal. I believe this publication was instrumental in helping me secure my tenure-track position at Université de Moncton. I consider this conference to be the most helpful I ever attended, and the funding I received from the CPSA helped make this possible. 


Kunle Adewumi (Graduate Student, Communications Assistant, 2021 CPSA Annual Conference)
Participating as an intern in the 2021 CPSA Conference came at a time when I was at a crossroad in deciding my future academic plans. Coming from a legal background, and serving on the Law and Public Policy Section panel, I was able to better understand the intersection of the two fields and identify areas where my legal and political science experience merged. Listening to and interacting with top scholars from various universities was a life-changing experience for me, and I am grateful for the opportunity. Furthermore, this experience gave me a sense of community through my interaction and shared experiences with other students from different universities, as well as the opportunity to learn important skills that have stayed with me beyond the conference.
