Along with your application letter, please also provide two letters of reference that support how you meet the above criteria.

Please include contact information for your references.
Successful applicants will be granted a discount between 30% and 75% of the listed course fee. Payment of the remaining amount plus tax is an individual responsibility and must be paid before course commencement. This amount is fully refundable up to 11 days before the course starts in the event the student is unable to attend.
Please be advised that scholarships are for tuition only, and other expenses and arrangements such as for travel, accommodation and meals are not included and are an individual responsibility.
Successful applicants may require a visa to enter Canada. Obtaining a visa is an individual responsibility. This can be a process that may take several weeks or months. Successful scholarship applicants should contact Canadian consular officials within their country to determine the length of the administrative process involved before selecting a realistic course commencement date. CICR will provide a letter to a successful candidate stating that he or she has been offered a training scholarship, however no further assistance can be provided.
CICR conducts courses in English or French. Applicants must be sufficiently fluent in either language to be able to fully participate in group activities, role playing and written exercises.
Scholarship applications will be reviewed by the Scholarship Committee at the end of each calendar quarter in which they are received. Applicants will normally be advised of the results within 15 days of the end of each quarter.
