A fabulous opportunity for students has come to our attention. The Canadian Battlefields Foundation is sponsoring its 13th Annual Battlefield Study Tour this summer, "The Canadians and the Liberation of Europe: Normandy, Dieppe, Vimy, Beaumont-Hamel". It runs from 1-16 June, 2007 and is intended for undergrads, grad students, and recent graduates. The tour will be led by Dr. Geoffrey Hayes of the University of Waterloo, and Lieutenant-Colonel David Patterson, Canadian Land Forces Command and Staff College. The foundation offers 12-16 scholarships that cover most of the expenses, though participants should expect to contribute between $1200 and $1500 of their own ($500 if they make their own way to Paris).
