Congratulations to Jodi Gustafson on receiving a Gates Cambridge Scholarship!
Jodi, an alumna of our Global Resource Systems program, is one of three Canadian students – and the only UBC student – selected among 54 Gates Cambridge Scholars who will begin their postgraduate studies at the University of Cambridge this September. Gates Cambridge Scholarships are prestigious, highly competitive full-cost scholarships awarded to outstanding applicants from countries outside the UK.
Jodi will pursue a Master of Philosophy in conservation leadership. While in the Global Resource Systems program, she produced a documentary, Qikiqtaruk- Herschel Island: Yukon’s Vulnerable Arctic Treasure, which highlighted the impacts of climate change on Inuvialuit communities in Canada’s Western Arctic.
She was also recently named one of Canada’s Top 25 Environmentalists Under 25 for 2015 as listed by The Starfish.
