Award Details
Grant Activity

Fulbright Canada scholars will conduct their own research, work collaboratively with new colleagues at the host institution, engage with students, and become involved in the local community. Applicants may propose teaching projects, research projects or a combination of both in a wide range of subject areas.

While the competition is open to all disciplines, 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 emphasize the need to be in residence in Canada to carry out the project.
