Honouring an internationally renowned anthropologist

$1M gift to support graduate students in Anthropology

The gift was made by Victor Koloshuk to honour the legacy of his late wife, Shelley Saunders, a McMaster researcher, beloved teacher and internationally renowned biological anthropologist.

“Shelly was so student focussed and she really did care deeply about her students and their ability to do the work that they wanted to do,” says Professor emerita Ann Herring, a long-time friend and colleague. “She really wanted to open up opportunities not only for people, but she really respected the kinds of ideas that her students had – she wanted to make it possible for them to pursue their ideas and pursue their dreams.”
