News in brief

CU partners with CHIN Radio

Carleton University is delighted to receive close to $120,000 from CHIN Radio, Ottawa’s premier multicultural/ multilingual broadcaster, which will support 10 music and journalism scholarships, a multicultural concert series, and a multicultural music competition. Carleton students Matthew Aston and Timothy Kitz are the inaugural recipients of the CHIN Radio music scholarships. Each will receive $1,250. Three more music scholarships will be awarded to students with high academic standing who also show a promise in ethnomusicology.

On the recommendation of the School of Journalism and Communication, five journalism scholarships will be awarded to students graduating from the Bachelor of Journalism program who show promise as broadcast journalists and have demonstrated a special interest in multicultural issues. Preference will be given to students who are multilingual.

CHIN Radio (Ottawa) created this project under its Canadian Talent Development Initiatives, which are designed to highlight and promote the performance of music from the multicultural communities in Ottawa-Gatineau.

Carleton has already presented two of three multicultural concerts of the fi rst concert series on campus. The third concert will be on Sunday, April 15 from 7:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. in the Alumni Theatre, Southam Hall.

Carleton student wins third place in Next Great Prime Minister contest
On March 19, Alysia Garmulewicz, a second-year Carleton University student, placed third in the Next Great Prime Minister contest. Garmulewicz and three other fi nalists had their visions for Canada and their political savvy thoroughly tested in front of four former Prime Ministers (Brian Mulroney, John Turner, Kim Campbell and Joe Clarke). The winner was chosen by a live voting studio audience.

Last year, Garmulewicz was one of 10 Canadian students to receive Environment Canada’s Cambio Merit scholarship at the Montreal Conference on Climate Change.
