Eight Université de Montréal professors are elected Fellows of the RSC, while three others will join the RSC’s College of New Scholars, Artists and Scientists.

The Royal Society of Canada (RSC) has released its list of new members for 2021, and among the 89 new Fellows are eight faculty members from Université de Montréal.

Elected by their peers for a seven-year term, the Fellows are recognized for their exemplary contributions to Canadian society, whether in science or the arts. They will join the ranks of one of the RSC's three academies: Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, or Science.

The RSC also announced 51 new members of its College of New Scholars, Artists and Scientists. Among them are three professors from UdeM.

The inductees must demonstrate excellence in their field and be in the early stages of their career. Recognizing intellectual, scientific and artistic achievement, their election must be made within 15 years of their graduation.

The new Fellows and College Members of the Class of 2021 will be honoured Nov. 19 at a ceremony to be held at McGill University, part of the RSC’s weeklong 2021 Celebration of Excellence and Engagment event.
