SOCIÉTÉ DES AMIS CANADA-FRANCE SCHOLARSHIP

INTRODUCTION

This fund was created in 2004, the year marking the 400th anniversary of the first European settlement in North America, established by the French. The Société des Amis Canada-France, an officially registered not-for-profit organization, was established in 1999 and incorporated in Ottawa in February 2002 under the name Les Amis de la Fédération Canada-France. The organization gathers francophones and francophiles from the greater Ottawa area in an effort to support the Fédération Canada-France in its mission to stengthen Canada-France relations.

Specifically, the organization draws individuals from all walks of life who take an interest both in societal issues and in political, economic, scientific and cultural relations from a Canada-France perspective. As a multidisciplinary local forum for the promotion of Canada-France relations and for the exchange of views and insights, it not only gives exposure but also formally contributes to the efforts of those committed to promoting and highlighting Canada-France relations (authors, journalists, teachers, documentalists, academics, students, business people, scientists and diplomats).

By offering this scholarship, the Société des Amis Canada-France wants to provide a catalyst for a long-lasting youth movement in Canada-France relations. The organization thanks the government of Ontario for providing matching funds through the OTSS.

PURPOSE OF FUND

To provide financial assistance to francophone students in need.
