Carleton connects students with alumni and unique learning experiences in Washington. Student groups from the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs and the School of Public Policy and Administration have travelled to the area and participated in briefings and events at the World Bank, International Monetary Fund and Canadian Embassy. Students also have opportunities to network with alumni working in the city.
We want to expand these activities in the D.C. area, including supporting trips for political management students. Funds raised will support the costs of student trips and ensure a continued Carleton presence in Washington.
Increased challenges in bilateral trade, immigration and what promises to be hard-fought elections on both sides of the border in the months ahead, makes this an important time to support these learning opportunities.
Our goal is to raise $12,500, which will be matched dollar-for-dollar by Carleton University. Funds raised will ensure that the trip is financially accessible, by providing deserving students with a stipend towards travel and other associated costs of attending the trip.
Funds raised will support student travel and associated costs to take part in learning opportunities in the Washington, D.C. area. Your support extends beyond the trip, as we recognize that this initiative fosters collaborative relationships, deepens our engagement in this region and connects current students with Carleton alumni in the Washington area who act as wonderful ambassadors for the university.
