Student Maggie Sardino has been selected as a recipient of a 2022 award through the Fulbright Canada Mitacs Globalink Program.

Maggie Sardino, a rising senior citizenship and civic engagement major in the Maxwell School and writing and rhetoric major in the College of Arts and Sciences, has been selected as a recipient of a 2022 award through the Fulbright Canada Mitacs Globalink Program.  

The program funds U.S. students to undertake advanced research projects in a wide range of disciplines for 10-12 weeks in Canada in their area of interest. It also provides professional training and opportunities for cultural and social experiences in Canada.

Sardino was awarded a placement at the University of Victoria in British Columbia to work on a project titled “Digital Humanities: Open Scholarship.”  

She said she was inspired to apply for the program because it presented her with an opportunity to engage in cutting-edge community-based research. “Canada is one of the leading countries in this field of research and learning,” she says.  

“I could not pass up on an opportunity to be trained and mentored by the leaders within community-based research.”  

She also said she appreciates the program’s emphasis on the importance of building relationships across the U.S. and Canada. “As someone who has not had much opportunity to travel, being able to experience living in another country and being supported by the Fulbright network presented me with the resources to immerse myself in another country and expand my perspective,” she says.
