Congratulations to Mélissa Coissard for her New Scholarships!

Mélissa Coissard, doctoral student in economics under the research
supervision of professors Marie Connolly and Catherine Haeck, won three new scholarships this spring:
– merit scholarship from the Quebec Society and Culture Research Fund (FQRSC), ($21,000 / 3 years)
– merit scholarship from the J.-A. DeSève Foundation – Doctorate ($5,000)
– scholarship from the Association étudiante de l’École des sciences de la gestion (AéESG) – Engagement (1000 $)

Her research project aims to identify the impact and economic spinoffs of Quebec political interventions on the cognitive and non-cognitive development of young children. In particular, it will analyze the impact of two Quebec public policies: the preschool for four-year-olds-program, as well as the impact of the school interruption caused by the pandemic, as part of a study carried out for the Ministry of Education and Higher Education (MEES).

Congratulations Mélissa!
