In honour of Dr. Bruce McFarlane and in recognition of his outstanding contributions during 33 years as a teacher and a scholar at Carleton University, on the occasion of his retirement in 1992, his friends, colleagues, and former students established this bursary. The Bruce McFarlane Bursary is available to full-time graduate students from the Department of Sociology and Anthropology or the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs who need financial assistance in order to meet tuition fees or cover research costs.
