    What are the eligibility requirements?

    In order to meet the criteria for an award, applicants must :

    • Be Métis

    • Intend to pursue a program of study leading to a recognized licence, certificate, diploma, undergraduate or professional degree in Alberta

    • Be permanent residents or citizens of Canada

    • Be residents of Alberta

    Primary consideration will be given to applications demonstrating:

    • Financial need

    • Connection to the Métis community

    • Likelihood of improved career opportunities

    Consideration and priority may also be given to:

    • Applicants entering their first year of post-secondary studies or academic upgrading, bridging, and university/college entrance programs (for more detail see the“What schools and programs are eligible” below)

    • Applicants demonstrating commitment to studies and maturity

    • Applicants with a history of volunteer work and leadership

    • Applicants with extenuating personal circumstances

    • Applicants who will study full-time

    Who is an Alberta resident?

    Awards are only open to residents of Alberta. Where residency is questionable, the awards panel may consider time lived in Alberta, demonstration of connection to Alberta, and stated intent to remain in or return to Alberta. Notwithstanding the above, the awards committee may in exceptional circumstances, in their discretion, grant an award to a non-resident of Alberta.

    What schools and programs are eligible?

    Awards can be used at any public university, college, or technical institute in Alberta, as well at any private institution or vocational school accredited by Alberta Learning Information Service . Awards may be provided to students attending school outside Alberta (but within Canada) when circumstances warrant (e.g. when a program is not offered in Alberta); applicants should clearly address why they have selected their school of choice. For schools outside Alberta, institutions must be equivalently accredited.

    An applicant’s program of study must lead to a recognized undergraduate degree, applied degree, diploma, certificate or licence.

    A limited number of awards are available to Graduate students in professional programs, including but not limited to Law, Medicine, Speech Pathology, and Physical Therapy. Graduate programs which are primarily academic in nature are not eligible for funding. Second or subsequent degrees are not considered a priority for awards.

    Academic upgrading, bridging, or college preparation programs are eligible. Students must indicate how completion of study will help them gain admission to a post-secondary program or lead to future gainful employment.

    How will awards be paid?

    Awards are intended to assist recipients with mandatory costs such as tuition and fees. For students with severe financial constraints or unique circumstances, awards may be provided to assist with cost related to attending school, such as textbooks. The awards will not provide a living allowance or technology items such as computers, software, upgrades, internet fees or related equipment.

    In general, awards for tuition and fees will be paid directly to the institution upon receipt of invoice. Awards to institutions will not be confirmed until conditions are met.

    It is the responsibility of the recipients to adhere to all regulations of the accepting post-secondary institution regarding all fee payments and to ensure that registration and/or enrolment status is not jeopardized. In particular, fee deadlines may impact students prior to award confirmation. Students are also responsible for all expenses not covered by the award, in accordance with institution payment deadlines. No part of any award issued by the Edmonton Community Foundation can be applied to amounts owing from previous years.

    Very Important Notes:

    • To apply, students must complete and submit the online application which will be available two months prior to the deadline.

    • A completed application must include two reference letters/ reference forms, and a copy of the applicant’s most recent marks. (for more more details about the required documents see the “Supporting Documents” section in the application)

    • Proof of Métis heritage must be provided before any award is confirmed but does not have to be submitted with the application.

    • Students entering Master or Doctoral programs which are primarily academic in nature are not eligible, although students entering professional programs may apply.

    • Candidates may be required to demonstrate ineligibility for other sources of funding (in particular, Métis Skills Development funding from the Rupertsland Institute).

    • Students entering second or later years of study, part-time students, students with previous post-secondary credentials, and past recipients may be considered depending on the amount of funding available in a given year.

    • Awards Candidates will be advised of the status of their application by email in early July of each year. Edmonton Community Foundation will notify accepting post-secondary institutions of any Belcourt Brosseau Métis Award recipients once all award conditions have been fulfilled. In general, student programs should not start before August 1. Applicants may re-apply in subsequent years, but each application is for a single school year only.

    Applications must be submitted through the online application system by the deadline. If March 31 falls on a weekend, applications will be accepted until4:30pm on the following business day.

    The Blackburns

    Lucie and Thornton Blackburn founded the first taxi company in Toronto in the 1830s. Their successful business enterprise was all the more notable in that the Blackburns were also involved in a number of other “firsts”. The Blackburns’ inspiring story included sparking the first racial uprising in Detroit history and the first serious legal dispute between Canada and the United Sates regarding the Underground Railroad.

    In 1831 Lucie and Thornton Blackburn made a daring escape from slave markets in Louisville, Kentucky. They fled north only to be discovered by slave catchers in Michigan, and were destined to be returned to slavery in Kentucky until the local black community in Detroit rallied to their cause sparking the Blackburn Riots of 1833.

    Escaping custody, the couple fled to freedom in Canada. In June 1833, Michigan’s governor demanded their extradition. An impassioned and successful defence of the Blackburns by Upper Canada’s Lieutenant Governor set precedent for future fugitive slave cases in Canada.

    The tale of the Blackburns was lost to history until a chance archaeological discovery in a downtown Toronto school yard again brought the story of Lucie and Thornton Blackburn to light. Their story is recorded in “I’ve Got A Home In Glory Land”, a Governor General’s Award winning book written by Karolyn Smardz Frost. As noted in the book, Fasken Martineau acted as legal counsel to the Blackburns.

L’octroi d’une bourse est soumis à l’obtention par le comité d’une vérification, satisfaisante pour l’Institut, selon laquelle la personne dont il est question de retenir la candidature a bien obtenu d’une université canadienne un baccalauréat en droit et qu’elle a été acceptée par une université européene, où l’enseignement se déroule en français, pour y poursuivre des études supérieures en droit visant l'obtention d'un diplôme de deuxième cycle ou de troisième cycle (l'équivalent d'une maîtrise ou d'un doctorat en droit dans une université canadienne). Le comité de sélection se réserve le droit de ne pas octroyer la bourse en l’absence de candidatures qu’il estime qualifiées. Les décisions du comité de sélection sont sans appel.

    SÉLECTION DE LA PERSONNE RÉCIPENDIAIRE DE LA BOURSE

    L’Institut communiquera d’ici le 15 avril 2018 avec l’éventuelle personne récipiendaire de la bourse

The ILRP invites Canadian and foreign students who are enrolling or are currently enrolled in SJD or PhD in Law studies at a Canadian university faculty of law to apply for the CIGI ILRP Doctoral Scholarship. Introduction to the International Law Program at CIGI

    We are the Centre for International Governance Innovation: an independent, non-partisan think tank with an objective and uniquely global perspective. Our research, opinions and public voice make a difference in today’s world by bringing clarity and innovative thinking to global policy making. By working across disciplines and in partnership with the best peers and experts, we are the benchmark for influential research and trusted analysis. The ILRP is a $60-million, ten-year, multi-disciplinary international law research program located at the award- winning CIGI Campus in Waterloo, Ontario, proximate to the Balsillie School of International Affairs.

    The ILRP strives to be the world’s leading international law think tank on international governance, with recognized impact on how international law is brought to bear on significant global issues. Our mission is to seek to connect knowledge, policy and practice to build the international law framework – the globalized rule of law – to support international governance of the future. Our founding belief is that better international governance including a strengthened international law framework can improve the lives of people everywhere, increase prosperity, ensure global sustainability, address inequality and safeguard human rights, and promote a more secure world.

    The ILRP’s areas of research focus

    The ILRP Doctoral Scholarship is designed to enhance research opportunities for SJD and PhD in Law students who wish to develop expertise in one or more of the ILRP’s areas of research focus and to develop world-class intellectual strength in the areas of international law that are most important to global innovation, prosperity, sustainability and security.

    In consultation with public, private, academic and civil society sector experts in international and transnational law, the ILRP has developed a research work plan focused on advancing knowledge and understanding in four vital areas of international law, set out below.

    Value of Doctoral Scholarship

    The value of the Doctoral Scholarship is up to $56,000 CAD. $24,000 CAD is paid in three instalments of $8,000 CAD in the first year. A doctoral student who has already been awarded a CIGI ILRP doctoral scholarship may apply for renewal in a subsequent year (for a maximum of two additional years) by submitting a summary renewal application. $16,000 CAD is paid per year, in two instalments of $8,000 CAD for years 2 and 3 of the doctoral scholarship. The value, duration and conditions for each scholarship will be detailed in the letter of offer provided to the successful applicant.

    Residence

    Doctoral Scholarship students are required to spend a four-month period of residency at the CIGI Campus within year 1 of the scholarship. There is no residency requirement for years 2 and 3 of the scholarship. The residency requirement provides SJD/PhD in Law students an opportunity to pursue their academic research in a think-tank environment where experienced researchers and senior fellows are studying related issues of international law and to participate actively in relevant CIGI and ILRP scholarly and professional activities. During the residency period, all scholarship students will present their research to the ILRP team for feedback and guidance. Each scholarship student is expected to prepare a CIGI opinion piece related to their research for publication by CIGI. There may be opportunities for scholarship students to publish commentaries on CIGIonline.org. Where logistics permit, scholarship students will have opportunities to participate in workshops and conferences organized by the ILRP that are relevant to their research.

    The residency element is flexible and can be adapted to complement the particular doctoral program and doctoral student’s research needs. A doctoral student may stay longer than four months if space permits and the student’s academic supervisor agrees.

    During the period of residency each scholarship student will be provided work and study space as well as access to our library and related research resources. Each student must provide their own computer; internet and e-mail access will be provided.

    Should the need arise, CIGI will provide guidance to students who require assistance finding suitable accommodation for the duration of their period of residency at the CIGI Campus.
