Announcing the 2015/16 Fellowship Recipients!

| September 22, 2015

We’re proud to announce the inaugural recipients of the Juno Beach Centre Fellowship program. A big congratulations to Natalie Thiesen of Royal Roads University in Victoria, British Columbia and Tyler Marr of Brock University in St. Catharine’s, Ontario!

IMG_4196Natalie will be in residency at the Juno Beach Centre in September 2015 to conduct research on Canadian visitor travel patterns with a focus on examining the perceptions and general awareness of Canadian First and Second World War sites.



Tyler will visit in March 2016 to study the connection between museums and classrooms. He will also create exciting educational resources that connect the JBC with Canadian curriculum. Keep an eye out for their work on our website!


The JBC’s new annual Fellowship Program aims to enrich the academic experience of students as they conduct focused research on Canada during the First and Second World Wars. Their work complements their own areas of study, as well as contributes to on-going research for upcoming exhibits and projects at the Juno Beach Centre in Normandy, and back home in Canada.

Best of luck to both Fellows!
