Jacques Gaudreau Graduate Scholarship in International Human Rights Law

The Jacques Gaudreau endowment fund was established in 1992 in memory of Jacques Gaudreau (1947-1989), an officer of the Department of External Affairs, by his friends, colleagues and family. Initially the fund was used to award one or two prizes on an annual basis to undergraduate and graduate students in the Faculty of Law at the University of Ottawa with the most outstanding mark or essay in the area of international human rights law. In 2015 the Human Rights Research and Education Centre, unit responsible for the fund, requested to transform it into a graduate scholarship that would benefit outstanding students in the Faculty of Law.
