Tuesday deadline for Canadian Studies applications
by Kathleen McCoy |
The Elizabeth Tower Endowment for Canadian Studies, which raises the visibility of Canadian studies at UAA and in the community and improves opportunities for UAA students studying in Canada, is seeking applications for two types of related activity, due Tuesday, April 1.
The endowment committee is soliciting proposals from the university community and the public at large for an event -- e.g., public lecture, art show, musical presentation, etc. -- by a prominent Canadian author, scholar, or artist. The committee intends to provide substantial funding (up to $5,000) for a worthy idea. Please direct well-defined proposals, including a budget, to the members of the Elizabeth Tower Endowment Committee, at the address below.
Also, the endowment committee has dedicated funds to support students who wish to study at a university in Canada. These will be made available on a case-by-case basis to students who've demonstrated an interest in Canada by excelling in INTL 301 or another course with significant Canadian content, have a strong academic record, or show promise, and have clear study plans. Applicants should write to the members of the committee stating your name and grade point average, describing the nature of study in Canada you wish to pursue, and explaining why you believe the committee should fund your studies. Include a letter of reference from a professor who can speak to your interests in studying in Canada.
Both types of applications, as well as inquiries, should be addressed to:
Dr. Elizabeth James, Chair
Elizabeth Tower Endowment for Canadian Studies
Department of History
University of Alaska Anchorage
3211 Providence Drive
Anchorage, AK 99508
