Program history

The Public Scholars program was launched in 2016, in partnership with the Montreal Gazette, to showcase the outstanding research being conducted by Concordia’s doctoral students. In 2022, the program was expanded to include partnerships with Le Devoir and The Conversation. The program was also revamped to provide more doctoral students with the unique professional development training Public Scholars receive. These changes help enhance the program’s impact through individualized coaching, modernized communication channels and new partnerships.
