UVic PhD student Monique Auger named Pierre Elliot Trudeau Foundation 2021 Scholar – Martlet

Monique Auger could be heard shrieking for joy outside her home on the day she was told she had been selected as one of the 15 Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation’s 2021 Scholars. The UVic PhD student was chosen from amongst 643 applicants for the prestigious leadership program for her academic excellence, leadership, and resilience.

“I felt a little bit like I was sticking out like a sore thumb,” Auger told the Martlet about her experience interviewing for the program amongst other high-achieving doctoral researchers from Canada and across the globe. “But maybe that’s the beauty of it because I did have a different way of looking at the issues that were presented to us.”

Auger is Métis of Haudenosaunee, Nisga’a, and French ancestry and works as a PhD student in the Social Dimensions of Health program at UVic. She also works as a sessional instructor in Indigenous Health at both UVic and Camosun College. Her doctoral research aims to use Métis specific methodology in order to explore the ways in which Métis traditions and culture can reorient Métis child welfare to be prevention-based.
