The Development Studies Alumni Work-Study Placement Award was created in 2007 and has since been renamed in the hour of DEVS alumna, and graduate student teaching assistant, Leslie Doucet, who died in October 2009. Leslie exemplified the spirit of experiential learning and it is an honour to have this fund in her name.
The Leslie Doucet Global Development Studies Student’s Fund was established to give undergraduate and graduate students the opportunity to participate in globally-minded projects that will provide educational opportunities outside the classroom, often in non-traditional study sites.
Applications to the fund can be sent directly to the Global Development Studies main office located in M-C B401 or electronically to Michelle Knapp-Hermer at firstname.lastname@example.org.

• A detailed budget which should include all income to date, projected expenses, all fundraising activities and a list of other departments, faculties, and outside organizations you have approached for funding and the outcome of those requests
• Your contact information
Applications are due no later than February 11
Applications and the amount of funding available will be assessed and evaluated in consultation with the Department Head and other faculty and staff. You will be notified of the outcome of your application by February 28.
