Ontario Ministry of Research and Innovation recognizes Dr. Schutz with the Early Researcher Award ($140,000)

Dr. Schutz received Ontario’s Early Research Award, a prize for faculty within the first 10 years of their research careers. This $140,000 award will support graduate and undergraduate students in the lab working under his supervision.

Dr. Schutz is McMaster’s first Humanities faculty member to receive this award. This will provide crucial funding to help build his research team and secure future grants to enhance the lab’s productivity.
