Graduate and Undergraduate Award for Scholarly Achievement in the Area of Gender-Based Violence 

Each year on December 6, the University of Toronto community marks the National Day of Remembrance & Action on Violence Against Women with events across the institution. Last year, the University announced that a new award would be established to recognize students who have made distinctive contributions in the area of gender-based violence research and prevention.
