JUNO BEACH CENTRE FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM

The Juno Beach Centre Fellowship will be granted to an applicant who shows they can make a positive impact on the Juno Beach Centre through their research. The program offers a unique opportunity for fostering future careers and enhancing educational experiences. The duration of the fellowship is one year, with research taking place within your Post-Secondary institution in Canada AND at the Juno Beach Centre in Courseulles-sur-Mer. Throughout the Fellowship term, the Fellow is expected to act as an ambassador for the Juno Beach Centre and communicate regular updates on the status of their research to the staff in Canada and Normandy.

The Fellowship Program includes a trip to the Juno Beach Centre to conduct primary research; travel will be subsidized up to $2000. On completion of the Fellowship and delivery of the final research report, recipients will receive an honorarium of $2000.

This year, the Juno Beach Centre has prepared a broad range of themes from which the Fellow should draw inspiration to elevate their research topic. These themes look forward to the 75th anniversary of D-Day and the Normandy Campaign in 2019, as well as dealing with day-to-day operations of the JBC in the areas of tourism, marketing, and sales. The 2017/2018 Fellow has the opportunity to provide research and ideas that will shape JBC operations and programming in the coming areas.

THEMES

HISTORY AND CURATION

Research related but not limited to:

  • Commemorative, historical, and educational programming for the 75th anniversary of D-Day Landings and Normandy Campaign
  • The relationship between British and Canadian Forces (in England, the Brits alongside the Canadians on Juno Beach and during the Battle of Normandy), highlighting the role of British Forces and the connection British visitors have with the Juno Beach Centre.
  • The overall history of the Battle of Normandy, with a focus on the experiences and stories of individual Canadian regiments following their progress from D-Day throughout the duration of the Normandy Campaign
  • The curation and creation of a detailed, minutiae timeline tracking Canadian actions and anecdotes through embarkation, disembarkation on D-Day, and the days immediately following (approximately June 4 to 11)
  • The presentation of current Canadian culture and society as part of the preparations for a new permanent exhibit entitled “Canada Today”
  • The curation and creation of selected, detailed biographies, including individuals representing the regiments, units, regions, and nationalities involved in the D-Day landings and the Normandy Campaign

TOURISM AND MARKETING

  • The development of tourism, marketing, and fundraising programs to run in advance of and through 2019 in honour of the 75th anniversary in order to raise awareness and garner support for the Juno Beach Centre

LOGISTICS AND BUSINESS

  • Every year, the Juno Beach Centre coordinates the import of thousands of items from dozens of vendors in Canada. Any of the many factors such as custom requirements, exchange rates, boutique sales profitability, margins, and inventory, and international shipping at play could be considered as part of an international trade and export case study.
