Equitas is a non-profit, non-governmental organization based in Montreal, Canada. Founded in 1967, Equitas works to advance equality, social justice and respect for human dignity through transformative education programs in Canada and around the world.

The IHRTP is an intermediate-level program focusing on international human rights standards, current human rights issues, and human rights education strategies. The exploration of human rights principles and instruments, ongoing critical reflection and inquiry, as well as extensive sharing of experiences allow participants to strengthen their capacity to engage in effective human rights education, and advance equality and human dignity, thus leading to social change

This amount covers:

> tuition

> program materials

> emergency medical insurance Participants are responsible for their international transportation as well as of any extra expenses such as entertainment and meals purchased outside of the cafeteria.


Through the support of Global Affairs Canada, Equitas may be able to award a limited number of partial and full bursaries to selected international candidates. A full bursary includes tuition fees (including room and board) for the 3-week training program as well as travel expenses. Once eligibility has been determined, the selection committee will award the bursaries to the international candidates who best meet the requirements. Due to the limited number of bursaries available, there is no guarantee that international candidates selected will receive funding. Therefore, we strongly urge all candidates to immediately begin seeking funding from other sources.

One special bursary, the Ruth Selwyn Bursary for Achievement in Empowering Women and Girls, will be awarded to a candidate who has:

> demonstrated a sustained commitment to the empowerment of women and girls

> advanced the rights of women and girls through the use of innovative methods, including education
