Sylvester Family Award (Closed)

The Sylvester Family Award at the Centre for Dialogue was established at Simon Fraser University in 2020 with a generous three year commitment from Shauna Sylvester, the former Executive Director of SFU’s Morris J. Wosk Centre for Dialogue.

At least one award, valued at a minimum of $1,095, will be granted annually to an undergraduate student who meet the following criteria:

  • Is enrolled full-time in any faculty at SFU in the term of eligibility
  • Is in good academic standing
  • Has taken a Semester in Dialogue during the calendar year in which the applications are due
  • Has made a demonstrated commitment to dialogue on racial equity and justice

The award will be granted by the Senate Undergraduate Awards Adjudication Committee upon the recommendation by the Semester in Dialogue Awards Committee.
