The ACJT-CALT contributed to the creation of the Gabriel-Kucharski Scholarship, the first scholarship for excellence in legal translation in Canada, offered every year at the Université de Montréal.
This fund was created to recognize the excellence, interest and motivation of students registered in the translation program of the Faculty of Arts and Science at the Université de Montréal. Donations honour the memory of Gabriel Kucharski, legal translator, who was one of the pioneers of translation in the securities field in Quebec. After obtaining a Bachelor’s degree in Translation at the University of Montréal, Mr. Kucharski was hired by a large Montreal law firm, where he stayed throughout his career.
The following criteria are taken into account when selecting candidates:
- the quality of the academic record
- strong interest in legal or technical translation
- financial need
