Mantle-Blachford Award

Mantle-Blachford Award - Co-operative Education Student of the Year 2021

The Mantle-Blachford scholarship was established in honour of John B. Mantle and Dr. Cameron Blachford, co-founders of the Co-operative Education Program at the University of Regina. It recognizes a Co-operative Education student who demonstrates excellence in the areas of work, academia, and community services.

Mr. Trey Chernoff, a Faculty of Science Co-op Student in the field of Physics, has won the 2021 Mantle-Blachford Award for Co-operative Education.

“The Co-op program has provided me with immense aid in numerous ways. It has foremost allowed me to participate both as a young professional scouting potential career opportunities and as a student seeking community during the COVID-19 pandemic. My time spent on an on-site medical physics work term has allowed me to perform ethically gratifying work that would not have been possible otherwise.”  - Trey Chernoff, 2021
