James M. Flaherty Program

a premiere international exchange programme, designed to promote greater dialogue and partnership between the universities of our two great countries, commemorating Canada's former Minister for Finance, and great friend of Ireland, James M. Flaherty.

This programme honours the work of Canada's former Minister for Finance, James M. Flaherty, a leader and a man of vision who, in his commitment to public service, strove to better the lives of all Canadians.

Ever proud of his Irish heritage, Jim Flaherty was a friend and supporter of Ireland and all things Irish, and indeed was an enthusiastic supporter of the ICUF. It is with much gratitude that we honour Jim Flaherty's life's work, by supporting scholars in Canada and Ireland who, working in partnership between these countries, lead the way across all university disciplines towards greater understanding of the contemporary challenges we face together.

Awards will be made in two ways;

-James M. Flaherty Scholarship

-James M. Flaherty Visiting Professorship
