The Mary-Jo Nadeau Activist Scholar Award

The Mary-Jo Nadeau Activist Scholar Award

The Mary-Jo Nadeau Activist Scholar Award (The M.J.) for Graduate Students in Sociology was established by family, friends, and colleagues of Dr. Mary-Jo Nadeau, a graduate (’05) of York University’s Graduate Program in Sociology. Her anti-racist feminist research and activism focused on white supremacy in the Canadian women’s movement, labour rights, anti-poverty campaigns, and Palestinian solidarity. This award is for a PhD student in Sociology whose work demonstrates a commitment to anti-racism, feminist inquiry, and is in solidarity with local and global struggles for social justice.

For more information, please see Sociology Graduate Program Awards.
