High School teachers, BEd, and MEd candidates are invited to apply for a study tour examining the Canadian battlefields and memorials of the Great War in Belgium and France as well as the Second World War in Dieppe and Normandy.

Participants may register for academic credit at the Masters’ or senior undergraduate level or obtain a non-credit certificate. A maximum of 18 participants will be selected. Each will receive a bursary sufficient to cover all accommodation, travel, and instruction costs while in Europe. Fees for course credit, travel to and from Europe, the cost of some meals and incidentals are the responsibility of the participant.

The Cleghorn War & Memory Study Tour is sponsored by the Laurier Centre for Military Strategic and Disarmament Studies (LCMSDS) at Wilfrid Laurier University, and the Gregg Centre for the Study of War and Society at the University of New Brunswick. Credit courses are offered through the University of New Brunswick’s Faculty of Education.

Bursaries for the tour are provided by John and Pattie Cleghorn in the hope that more Canadians will have the opportunity to learn about the sacrifices and achievements of the young Canadians who fought for the liberation of Europe and the hope of a better world.

For questions about the tour, please contact the study tour director, Lee Windsor or Terry Copp. For details regarding the Tour’s purpose, itinerary, and application process, click here to visit the Gregg Centre’s website.
