Congratulations to Ada Smith being one of the two recipients for the 2017 Elizabeth Henry Scholarship!
On behalf of the Fraser Basin Council and the Elizabeth Henry Scholarship Committee, we are excited to announce that the Elizabeth Henry Scholarship for Communities and Environmental Health 2017 recipients are Ada Smith and Kim-Ly Thompson. Here is what Ada had to say about the importance of the Elizabeth Henry Scholarship to their work:
“The support of the Elizabeth Henry Scholarship exemplifies, in the Sm’algyax language, “bax laansk” – or how we can come together in collaborative research and in decolonizing approaches toward a just and sustainable food system.” -Ada Smith
