ANDREA AND CHARLES R. BRONFMAN AWARD IN CANADIAN STUDIES
(established in 1993)

Through the support of the Bronfman family, this award provides partial course tuition and full travel costs for a one week in Ottawa, for a student taking Canadian Studies. It is designed to promote Canadian understanding by providing the recipients with the opportunity to realize, physically and academically, exposure to a wider experience and knowledge of Canadian life and to share that knowledge with others.

At present no other university offers such an award. The week in Ottawa is taken during the February break period. Recipients not only get to enjoy the activities of Winterlude, the exhibitions at the National Gallery, Museum of Civilization and Museum of Science and Technology, they also spend a day shadowing a Member of Parliament, another day following the activities of the Senate and a third day visiting the Supreme Court and observing the court in session. The activities for the week are organized by the co-ordinator of the Canadian Studies program, with an eye to the particular interests of the award recipient.
