Jayne Malenfant, scholar 2018 of the Foundation, recently gave an interview about her work and her journey to the McGill News magazine. She explains how her doctoral research topic, namely the barriers to education for young people in precarious housing situations, is informed by her own experience of precarious housing during her adolescence. Having first hand knowledge of the school system’s shortcomings in dealing with students in such circumstances, Jayne aims to improve this situation through her research so that everyone has access to education.

Learn more about Jayne's unusual journey and her work by reading the McGill News article.
