Scholarships for top students

Camilla Tanaka, a sociology student from Brazil, was one of 19 students honoured recently with a $5,000 scholarship awarded by the Faculty of Arts and Science to deserving international students.

Tanaka was joined at the ceremony by her sister, Priscila Tanaka-Keliher, and their mother, Clarice Tanaka. Also at the ceremony, 137 Arts and Science Scholars were presented with a certificate of achievement and cheques for $250.

They were the top returning students in the Faculty, based on their grade-point averages in 2000-01. More than 1,000 students achieved a grade-point average of at least 3.75, and appeared on the Dean’s List. The list will be in the Gazette this Saturday.
