Three awards are given out each year by the SSEA and its Chapters to help bring scholars to the Annual General Meeting Weekend. Two of these awards bring scholars to present in the Scholars’ Colloquium. These are the STEVEN LARKMAN TRAVEL AWARD, funded by Calgary Chapter, and the BOURSE ELIZABETH DAIMSIS, funded by the Chapitre de Montréal. One speaker at the Annual Symposium is designated as the Patricia Paice Speaker, and is funded by the PAT PAICE FUND
