Chris H. Braeuel Bursary for Global and International Studies

Date of the event: 
3 December 2019

Help a student in financial need gain real-world experience by making a tax-deductible donation to Carleton's Chris H. Braeuel Bursary for Global and International Studies on Tuesday, December 3rd only and it will be matched dollar-for-dollar !

Carleton’s Bachelor of Global and International Studies (BGInS) program is an innovative, multi-disciplinary, program that welcomed its first students in 2015.  The goal of the program is to educate active and engaged global citizens by producing a global mindset—an approach to the world that encourages immersion in new places, cultures and languages. As part of the undergraduate Honours program, it is mandatory for students to complete an International Experience Requirement. The Chris H. Braeuel Bursary for Global and International Studies  will allow students in need to complete this component and gain real-world experience, regardless of financial barriers.

This year, we hope to raise an additional $10,000 in funding, to help provide students with more support towards their international experience. We would like to request your support this Giving Tuesday (December 3rd only), as Carleton University will be matching the first $500,000 in gifts dollar-for-dollar (up to $10,000 per donation). There is no overhead change on donations so that 100% of the proceeds go directly towards the Bursary.

Mark your calendar for a December 3rd donation to the Chris H. Braeuel Bursary, as it is an incredible opportunity for your support to make double the impact! Donations are eligible for a tax-deductible receipt and can be made conveniently through this secure link: or

As the recipient of the 2017 Carleton Alumni Humanitarian Award, CAIDP member Chris Braeuel gravitated towards establishing this award based on his desire to support students in value-added ways over the long-term. Through his cumulative knowledge and experience in over 80 countries spanning 6 continents, Chris continues to serve with passion and commitment and enjoys sharing that enthusiasm with students as a Mentor.

“It’s an honour and a privilege to be able to support students in need with their international placements, a key component of the BGInS program. Having served abroad in my youth, I recall with fondness and appreciation not only the life-changing experiences that etched my career path in stone but also the financial support that made it possible. The world is experiencing unprecedented challenges and opportunities. It is my hope that this bursary will grow and benefit generations of students committed to global citizenship and positive change.”
