Nominations open for the 2016 Lewis Perinbam Award for International Development

Posted June 27th 2016

The Lewis Perinbam Award recognizes significant volunteer efforts that improve people’s lives in the developing world, engage and inspire Canadians to undertake volunteer action, and offer new ways to think about and address development challenges.

The award is focused on commending a volunteer who makes a noteworthy contribution to international development, rather than a paid professional. However, paid professionals who make a significant voluntary effort are also eligible for the award.

This year’s winner will be announced on the World University Service of Canada website and will be invited to receive the award at the International Forum in Montreal in January 2017. Winners will receive $5,000 towards their volunteer work.

The deadline for nominations and applications is October 11, 2016
