Kristina Chang receives three scholarship awards

Congrats to ACHRU trainee Kristina Chang on recently receiving three scholarship awards: the Ontario Graduate Fellowship, the Ann C. Beckingham Graduate Scholarship and the Registered Nurses’ Foundation of Ontario (RNFOO) Ontario Nursing Informatics Group Scholarship.

Chang is a is a graduate student in the Master of Science program – thesis based at McMaster University and works as a research assistant in the university’s Aging, Community and Health Research Unit (ACHRU).

She has been awarded an Ontario Graduate Fellowship for the 2016-17 academic year. The Ontario Graduate Fellowships were established in 2005 with funds from the government of Ontario to fund exceptional graduate scholars at McMaster University.

The Ann C. Beckingham Graduate Scholarship is provided to support outstanding Registered Nurses undertaking further education in a graduate degree program relevant to career development, preferably in the field of gerontological nursing – this includes Nurse Practitioner programs that focus on the care of older adults. 

The Ontario Nursing Informatics Group (ONIG) Scholarships provide opportunities to Registered Nurses who wish to pursue further education in informatics at the undergraduate or graduate level.

Chang hopes her second year in the Master’s program will provide her with more specialization and greater insight into the future direction that her career might take.
