Today's #GranteeSpotlight is on the Kupe Leadership Scholarships at @universityofauckland.

In 2017, the McCall MacBain Foundation partnered with the University of Auckland to create the Kupe Leadership Scholarships, which give exceptional scholars an integrated financial, personal and professional experience that equips them to succeed as leaders in New Zealand, and internationally.

Pictured above is one of the 2020 Kupe Leadership Scholars we are proud to support, Sung-Min Jun. Sung-Min is completing a Bachelor of Medical Sciences (Honours). He shares the following:

“Embarking on a career in medicine, I am passionate about equity within healthcare. Of particular interest to me is the role of healthcare professionals in perpetuating or reducing health inequities. Research consistently shows that factors like ethnicity (i.e. Māori vs non- Māori) play a significant role in determining the quality of care a patient receives.

While multifactorial, a large part of this can be attributed to the attitudes and decisions a healthcare professional makes. New Zealand has come far in educating and working towards attaining this standard, however, we still have a lot to achieve and hope for. I aim to utilise all that I can to continue to foster and take part in developing the attitudes required to address this issue.”

Meet @uwinnipeg graduates Chanelle Lajoie, Josh Swain, and Sophia Hershfield, three of the inaugural finalists for the @mccallmacbainscholars @mcgillu.

Chanelle Lajoie organizes community gatherings to educate people on Indigenous sovereignty on Turtle Island and Treaty 1 Territory. They create films about queer Métis experiences, raise awareness of harms caused by policing, and edit a bi-monthly magazine to share prisoners’ lived experiences with the public. Lajoie works part-time as program coordinator and as a reunification support mentor for families impacted by the child welfare system.

Josh Swain engages with his Métis heritage by helping run a campus group that supports Indigenous students in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. This past year, he also helped teach biology and financial literacy to Indigenous students.

Sophia Hershfield organized events and served on a national advisory committee to create more queer spaces within the Jewish community. On campus, she co-organized the largest business case competition in Western Canada, organized an annual trip for 50 politically interested students from across the country, and volunteered with her local Hillel chapter.

They will join 47 other Canadian peers from 28 universities at virtual final interviews next week with Canadian leaders from academia, business, government, and the social sector.

Congratulations Chanelle, Josh, and Sophia!
