Battlefield Study Tour 26 May to 9 June 2013 Now in its 19th year, the Canadian Battlefields Foundation Study Tour is intended for Canadian university students who want to learn more about the role Canadians played in the liberation of Europe in the World Wars. This year’s tour, led by Prof. Andrew Iarocci (UWO) and Prof. Graham Broad (King’s University College, UWO) will visit Ypres, the Somme, Vimy Ridge, Dieppe, the Normandy battlefields, and participate in ceremonies marking the anniversary of D-Day. The Foundation offers a bursary to each successful applicant but requires them to contribute $1000 towards the cost of the tour, which includes air and ground travel from Toronto, accommodation, meals, and study materials. Students will be expected to prepare for the trip academically, to lead one on-site discussion, present a short biography of a Canadian soldier buried at one of the sites on the itinerary, and keep a detailed journal describing their experiences. Outstanding undergraduates, graduate students, and very recent grads are encouraged to apply. Submit five copies of the application form found at by February 25th, 2013, along with official university transcripts and two academic letters of reference to: Prof. Graham Broad, Dept of History King’s University College, UWO 266 Epworth Ave., London, ON N6A 2M3 For more info, contact Prof. Andrew Iarocci, Prof. Graham Broad
