We are pleased to announce the recipients of the 2015-2016 Chuck Talbot Scholarship (Department of Criminology, University of Ottawa) for undergraduate students who made an exceptional contribution during their field placement.
Recipient Jean-Denis David completed his field placement at Statistics Canada, while recipient Brianna Garneau completed her field placement at Talitha House.
The Department of Criminology established the Chuck Talbot Memorial Prize in memory of one of its long-standing colleagues, Professor Charles K. Talbot, who died in August 1992. Professor Talbot had been a member of the Department of Criminology since the Department's outset, beginning his career with the University of Ottawa in 1969. Influential in his field of research, Professor Talbot was an enthusiastic educator. In addition to his responsibilities as professor, he helped establish the Department's Field Work Placement and was its coordinator until the mid 1980s. Colleagues and students alike miss him very much.
