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.
