The Institute of European, Russian and Eurasian Studies (EURUS) is pleased to announce a donation of $100,000 from Kinross Gold to support research and scholarship. The Kinross Gold Fund in Russian Studies will support Russian language training for students, promote research on the political economy of contemporary Russia, and support exchanges between Canada and Russia for students and faculty. This gift has already been put to good work, supporting a conference on Canada-Russia Dialogue and Cooperation in the Arctic, which was held at Carleton in November 2016.
Kinross Gold’s gift builds on past donations from the corporation. In recent years, the generosity of Kinross Gold and other EURUS donors have allowed more than 60 students to travel for Russian language training or Russian related research, as well as supported guest lectures, visiting scholars and international conferences.
Kinross Gold’s gift is a part of Carleton’s Collaborate Campaign, a $300 million fundraising effort to advance education as a force for economic, social and common good.
