GOVERNOR GENERAL’S GOLD MEDALS

The Governor General’s Gold Medal was first awarded in 1873 by the Earl of Dufferin. This award has since become one of the most prestigious that a student at a Canadian educational institution may receive.  The Gold Medal is awarded to three students who achieve the highest academic standing at the graduate level.  This year SGS received 23 nominations.
