The program is intended for graduate students of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem who have been invited to present a paper with substantial Canadian content at a Canadian Studies Conference abroad. The maximum sum to be awarded is $ (CD)1,500. Materials should be received at the Halbert Centre at least three months before the conference is scheduled to begin. Please note that each student is entitled to receive this grant only once. Please send the following application materials in English, via e-mail, to the Halbert Center for Canadian Studies: a. an updated curriculum vitae;   b. a 400-500 word synopsis of your conference paper, in Times New Roman, 12 point font, and 1.5 spacing, with each page numbered consecutively and including your name and e-mail address in the top right-hand corner;   c. a letter of invitation from the conference organizers. Under separate cover, a letter of recommendation from your research/thesis advisor should be sent in Hebrew or English, directly, either via e-mail or regular mail, to the Halbert Centre. Your application will be judged according to its overall academic excellence and the Canadian content of your paper. Within four weeks after your return, please send a brief (250-350 words) report in English, in the same style format as 2 (b) above, describing the contribution of the conference to your academic experience and interests.         * Final approval of the grant is subject to budget confirmation from Hebrew University.
