Applications are invited for the Janet Warner – Eric Rump Travel Award.  This award has been established to honour the memory of our Glendon colleagues, Blake Scholar and novelist, Janet Warner, and specialist in 18th-century drama, Eric Rump, both great travellers, who felt travel was enriching.

The purpose of the award is to aid a Glendon student who wishes to travel somewhere outside of Toronto with an academic aim in mind.  This could include such things as travels to libraries or archives for research purposes, or other travels which could, at least in part, be justified on academic grounds.  The money is available for bus/train or air fare, for accommodation expenses, or other related expenses such as photocopies and duplication fees for research projects.

Value of Award: $2000
