Hoffman named Trudeau Scholar

1 min read

Steven Hoffman, a doctoral candidate in the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences’ (GSAS) Health Policy program, has been awarded the prestigious 2012 Trudeau Scholarship.

The scholarships are awarded annually by the Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation of Canada to support up to 15 doctoral candidates pursuing research of compelling present-day concerns that address one or more of the foundation’s themes: human rights and dignity, responsible citizenship, Canada in the world, and people and their natural environment. Trudeau Scholars are highly gifted individuals who are actively engaged in their fields and expected to become leading national and international figures.

Hoffman, who came to Harvard last year as the recipient of a 2011-12 Fulbright Canada Student Award, is pursuing a Ph.D. in health policy. Awarded by GSAS, the degree is part of a collaborative program that includes faculty from the Faculty of Arts and Sciences and five Harvard Schools: the Harvard School of Public Health, Harvard Medical School, Harvard Business School, Harvard Law School, and Harvard Kennedy School.
