Default SCHOLARSHIPS AVAILABLE FOR SUMMER 2005 GENOCIDE AND HUMAN RIGHTS UNIVERSITY PROGRAM

SCHOLARSHIPS AVAILABLE FOR SUMMER 2005 GENOCIDE AND HUMAN RIGHTS UNIVERSITY PROGRAM

The International Institute for Genocide and Human Rights Studies (IIGHRS)
is pleased to announce the availability of new scholarship funding for
selected students attending the Genocide and Human Rights University Program
(GHRUP) in Toronto, August 2-12, 2005. Eligible students are advised to
apply immediately. The IIGHRS has extended the application deadline to June
24, 2005.

"The recent donation of scholarship funds by several individuals is a
wonderful testament to the importance and universal benefit of this unique
program," stated Dr. Roger W. Smith, Director of the GHRUP. "It will enable
deserving students, who do not otherwise have the means, to attend the
program. Hopefully, this will be a springboard to a career in genocide
studies and the ability to make a significant contribution to the field," he
added.

"Hopefully, other individuals will come forward with scholarships to help
additional deserving students from other countries attend the course,"
commented George Shirinian, Executive Director of the IIGHRS.

Scholarships covering the cost of tuition and accommodation are available
for 2 eligible students from Turkey, 2 from Israel, 3 from Africa, and 4
Armenian students from outside North America.

It is a requirement of the Admissions Committee that candidates be
university students with at least three years of undergraduate experience.
Selection will be based on a combination of strength of interest, scholastic
aptitude, and relevance of the course to the candidate's future.

Eligible applicants should send a brief explanation of their financial
situation and why they deserve a scholarship, along with the other required
documents found under the Registration section at www.genocidestudies.org.
Applications may be sent by post to the address above.

This two-week course, run annually, provides participants with the
intellectual framework for understanding the numerous, complex, and often
emotional issues related to genocide and gross human rights violations. An
examination of several major case studies of genocide, including the
Armenian Genocide, the Jewish Holocaust, the Cambodian Genocide and the
Rwandan Genocide, provides the foundation for comparative analysis. Students
attending the course have the option of receiving four semester credits from
the University of Minnesota.
