CCIL Veterans Scholarship

The Canadian Council on International Law is fundraising for a new scholarship.  The CCIL Veterans Scholarship will provide tuition support to a Canadian Forces veteran entering or pursuing legal studies at the JD or LL.B. level in a Canadian law school.  As president of the CCIL, I am actively fundraising in support of this scholarship.  To this end, I am completing a series of endurance events through 2012.  Please support my efforts!

Learn more about my efforts here.  Learn more about the scholarship and the Canadian Council on International Law here.  The CCIL is a registered Canadian charity and donations are tax creditable.

In 2012, I will try to complete the following endurance events in aid of a campaign to raise funds for a scholarship in law for Canadian Forces veterans: 

Winterlude Triathlon

Gatineau Loppet (50k edition)

Boston Marathon

Rideau Lakes Tour, Classic Route;

Ironman 70.3 Mont Tremblant (a half-ironman event)

Ironman Mont Tremblant (a full ironman event)

Army Run (half-marathon).

This blog will follow my "four seasons of moving vigorously", with hopefully worthwhile reflections on the world of endurance athletics.  I hope it will also encourage you and all my readers to support my cause.

Leslie C Green Scholarship in International Humanitarian Law

I am pleased to announce that through the generosity of many individual donors, including some who followed this blog, the Canadian Council on International Law will be awarding its first Leslie C Green Scholarship in International Humanitarian Law to a first year law student and Canadian Forces veteran in academic year 2013-14.  The initial award will be $2,000.

I am drawing up the criteria and application procedure for this scholarship over the next few weeks.  I would, however, like to thank those who supported my Four Seasons of Moving Vigorously -- that is, my fundraising efforts.  Thanks also to the many who supported the even more impressive fundraising efforts of Félix-Antoine Turmel-Doyon.

We intend to keep this award alive for future years.  It will persist through the individual donations of individuals like you.

If you would like to know more about the award, the background is described on the CCIL website here.  We will also develop a website honouring Leslie C Green, the international humanitarian law scholar, World War II veteran and long time friend of the CCIL in whose honour the award is named.

Thank you again.
