Andrew Kaufman (PhD student human geography) & Diala Lteif (PhD candidate urban planning) awarded the Prestigious Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation Scholarship
Andrew’s research on financial firms that invest in other countries’ debt and Diala’s investigation of how refugees and internally displaced populations in Lebanon have appropriated concepts of migration and citizenship have earned them the prestigious title of Pierre Elliott Trudeau Scholars.
Andrew Kaufman and Diala Lteif are the 31st and 32nd scholarship recipients nominated by the University of Toronto and are respectively the 4th in geography and 3rd in planning.
There were only two U of T recipients this year and both are from the Geography & Planning Department.
Congratulations Andrew and Diala!
