Traditional Fulbright awards are open to Canadian scholars in all fields and are designed to enable emerging and established scholars, post-doctoral researchers and experienced professionals to conduct research, teach, or undertake a combination of both activities for one semester or a full academic year at any university or research center of their choice in the United States.

Specialization: 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 clearly document the need to be in residence in Canada to carry out the project.

Award Details: The award is valued at $12,500 for one semester, either September 2018 or January 2019. The 2018-2019 competition deadline is November 15, 2017 at 5:00pm EST. 

Affiliation: Applicants should arrange affiliation and include a letter of invitation from their preferred host institution(s). Applicants may also be considered for Visiting Research Chair awards as appropriate.

Applicants are encouraged to review the Visiting Research Chairs for opportunities that may fit with your research project. Applicants are encouraged to identify their top three choices in the online application.
