Faculty of Law Research Travel Grants for BCL/LLB Students

Le développement d’habiletés de recherche est un élément-clé du programme de BCL/LLB. Afin d’encourager et de soutenir la recherche étudiante au premier cycle, la Faculté de droit offre une aide financière aux étudiant.e.s qui souhaitent présenter un travail de recherche lors d’une conférence organisée au Canada ou ailleurs. Les personnes choisies recevront une bourse d’un montant maximum de 1 000$ pour aider à payer les frais de déplacement et de logement.

These grants are made possible through the generosity of donors who have created the following funds:

  • Teresa and Tony Fata Fund for Innovation in Teaching and Learning
  • Dobson Fund

Eligibility Criteria

The awards will be allocated on a rolling basis to BCL/LLB students in the Faculty of Law presenting a paper at a conference.

  • Applicants must have been accepted to present a paper at a conference. In some cases, poster board presentations will be considered as well.
  • All applicants must complete the File Student Travel Grant Application Form.
  • Within 30 days of presenting at the conference, the successful applicant must provide a 300-word report outlining how the award facilitated participation at the event and the impact this had on the applicant's university experience.
