University of Toronto Alumni Mastercard Funds Student Research

By joining the thousands of other U of T alumni that carry the Alumni card, you can contribute to Innis College and its mission.  Thanks to the support of alumni who have signed up for the UNIVERSITY OF TORONTO AFFINITY MASTERCARD, Innis College was able to help fund a student’s travel to Germany to conduct physics research with a University Professor.

Through the Undergraduate Student Research Awards Program, Innis College student Darryl Hoving accompanied Professor R.J. Dwayne Miller at the Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron (DESY) in Hamburg, Germany over the summer holiday. DESY specializes in the field of high-energy particle physics. With the opportunity of a lifetime, Hoving experienced cutting edge physics at a highly respected Institute, but it is not without thanks to Innis College.

“Without the support of Principal Janet Paterson, Assistant Principal and Registrar Donald Boere, and the wonderful people at the exchange office, this trip would not have been possible.  It would be difficult to understate just how exciting this opportunity has been, and I’m very grateful to Innis for supporting me and making this trip possible, ” said Hoving.
