Special Projects with links to Peter Cundill's interests:


The Cundill Prize in Historical Literature at McGill University
Established in 2008 to recognise and promote literary and academic achievement, a grand prize of US$75,000 and two runner-up prizes are available to an individual of any nationality who has published a book (written or translated into English) which is determined to have had, or will have, a profound literary, social and academic impact in the area of history. There is also a fellowship programme for outstanding graduate students entering a doctoral programme in McGill's Department of History.

Friends of Florence
The restoration of the Prints and Drawings, Study and Consultation Rooms of the Uffizi Gallery, which houses the largest and most prestigious collection in the world including works by Raphael, Titian, Parmigiano and Barocci. The creation of a world class resource will enable the Gallery to grant access to a much greater number of requests received from historians, researchers and scholars which previously had to be turned down, as well as raise public awareness through programmes in the international media.

The James Hunter Family ALS Initiative
Funding has been provided to assist the University of Toronto's Tanz Centre for Research in Neurodegenerative Diseases in their goal of accelerating the pace of their work to understand ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) or Lou Gehrig's disease, a devastating adult-onset neurodegenerative disease, as well as developing accurate technology to allow earlier diagnosis, finding effective treatments and ultimately a cure.
