Awards For Canadian Scholars

For More Information

Description

Fulbright Canada offers a wide range of awards for academic exchange in numerous disciplines. Academic exchanges expose the scholar with new ideas and new perspectives, encourage networking with top-tier scholars, and highlight a different culture. Traditional Fulbright Scholar Awards are open to all disciplines, but Fulbright Canada is particularly interested in encouraging research on contemporary issues relevant to Canada, the United States and the relationship between the two countries.  Applicants should also clearly document the need to be in residence in Canada to carry out the project.
