A $1 million dollar gift by Victor Koloshuk to honour the legacy of his late wife, the renowned biological anthropologist Shelly Saunders, is being used to establish the Shelley Saunders/Koloshuk Family Scholarship. The scholarship is poised to help attract the best national and international students interested in pursuing graduate degrees in biological anthropology to the McMaster University, Department of Anthropology. For graduate students on the look out to join the McMaster Ancient DNA Centre, this is great news to help potentially support them during their Master’s and/or Doctoral studies.

Many many thanks to Victor, Shelly and the entire Koloshuk family for their tremendously generous gift!
