Business student Laurence Lemay is one of three Canadian students to receive a $5,000 Queen Elizabeth II Silver Jubilee award for study in a second official language. The award is sponsored by the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada (AUCC).

Lemay, a Francophone from Quebec City, came to SFU in 2002 and will graduate in 2005. She hopes to continue her studies at Johns Hopkins University in the U.S., where she would like to earn a masters degree in international affairs.

“My ultimate career goal is to be involved in the international development sector, relating that to sport and Olympism,” says Lemay. “I feel there's a strong relationship between sport and international relations.”

A former rugby player, Lemay is also fluent in Spanish - she spent a year as a visiting student in the faculty of business and management at Universidad Politecnica de Valencia in Spain.

Lemay has financed her studies at SFU through scholarships, bursaries and part-time jobs.
