Fellows represented almost all provinces and territories in Canada (Nunavut, British Columbia, Alberta, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec, Newfoundland, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia).
- Overall, 69% of fellows were in the top 10% of their previous cohort (e.g., class, work group, etc.).
- Nearly 70% (69%, 36/52) of fellows had a multidisciplinary background that included at least three different disciplines when they entered the UWW Fellowship Program.
- 61% (30/49) of the fellows dedicated more than 100 hours of study on their field mentoring placement
- Overall, UWW fellows (2.o – 5.o) delivered 147 conference presentations, 108 additional community presentations and published 100 articles (peer reviewed and grey literature). Approximately 42% (n=22/52) of these peer-reviewed publications were in one of the top five journals in their respective fields.
- Moreover, fellows secured an additional ~$1,000,000 in funding during their fellowship; $170,000 were declined.
