Re: Call for Applications: Fulbright-OAS Award for CanadianEnvironmentalists - Deadline May 31, 2004
It is my pleasure to call your attention to an awards program designed to recognize and support Canadian professionals and students active in the areas of environmental protection and sustainable development. Your assistance in disseminating this information among the University of Saskatchewan community would be most appreciated.
The Fulbright-OAS Ecology Initiative supports exceptional individuals throughout the Americas who have contributed in important ways to sustainable development and environmental protection in their own countries. Valued at more than US$30,000 over two years, the Fulbright-OAS Ecology Award offers successful candidates the opportunity to pursue a graduate degree in the fields of natural sciences, social sciences or public policy at a university of their choice in the United States.
Each year, one individual from each country in the Western Hemisphere is awarded a Fulbright-OAS Ecology scholarship. This year, Mr. Ian Scott, a University of Victoria alumnus and currently Georgian Basin Program Coordinator at Ecotrust Canada, was selected to participate in the prestigious program.
The competition officially opens March 1, 2004 and applications will be accepted until May 31, 2004 for awards to be taken up September 2005. As of March 1, applications will be available to download at www.laspau.harvard.edu/fb-oas.htm (username- fbapp, password- education).
Applicants must have outstanding academic and professional qualifications and the potential to take a leadership role in addressing environmental issues in the region. Candidates must be Canadian citizens who demonstrate the potential to assume a leadership role in fostering environmental preservation.

Your assistance in informing your community of awards available through the Canada-US Fulbright Program is greatly appreciated.
