University of Manitoba's Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Scholarship: Engaging Indigenous Languages, Knowledges, Learning and the Land
The program is intended to develop global citizens, activate a new generation of global leaders, enhance collaborative capacity and relationship building and enable scholars to pursue and amplify community development across the Commonwealth. Thanks to funding provided by the Waugh Family Foundation, QES 2021 supports projects in Latin America and the Caribbean that focus on education, social services and health.
The Canadian Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Scholarship Program (QES) is a joint initiative of the Rideau Hall Foundation, Community Foundations of Canada and Universities Canada. The program was created through contributions from the Government of Canada, provincial governments, the private sector and individuals.
Scholarship recipients, called “Queen Elizabeth Scholars”, engage with communities, learn about cultures and create projects and actions that impact the world. They are part of a global network of Queen Elizabeth Scholars who share knowledge, exchange ideas, and collaborate on meaningful initiatives.

Arc Education is a new initiative that aims to build a group similar to a gay-straight alliance (GSA) in the University of Manitoba's Faculty of Education.
The name "Arc" represents the height of the rainbow, a symbol of diversity and pride in the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, two-spirit and queer (LGBTTQ) community. We see education as being at the "height" of confronting issues and challenges facing LGBTTQ people, and therefore well-positioned as a discipline to contribute to social change.
As a social and research group, we have several purposes:
- To create a safe space for LGBTTQ students, faculty and staff and their allies in the Faculty of Education;
- To explore some of the complex issues surrounding sexual and gender diversity faced by stakeholders in education (teachers, administrators, students and so forth); and
- To guide teacher candidates, educators, administrators, researchers and colleagues on the process of creating a gay-straight alliance in Manitoban schools and other educational venues.
If you would like to participate in Arc Education, please email the Education Student Council at firstname.lastname@example.org
Anyone who is interested in joining the group is welcome. Students, faculty and staff are most welcome to attend. Attendees are encouraged to preview the website www.mygsa.ca so they can obtain a sense of what a GSA does.
