Traditional Fulbright Scholar Awards are intended for candidates who wish to conduct research, to teach or to undertake a combination of both activities at an academic institution of their choice in Canada.
All American award recipients must be affiliated with an institution in Canada and are responsible for securing such affiliation, with the exception of applicants to the Visiting Research Chairs Program. Applicants are encouraged to establish an affiliation with the intended host institution at an early stage. Please note that while most award recipients are affiliated with a university or college in the host country, institutional affiliation may also be secured with a non-profit organization, such as a museum or research centre as appropriate to the proposed project.
The 2014-15 competition is now OPEN, the deadline to submit an application is August 1st.
Follow us on our Facebook page to receive announcements on when this, and other Fulbright Canada competitions, will open.
Fulbright Canada interviewed some of the 2011-2012 U.S. Scholars, to find out why they chose to come to Canada for their Fulbright experience. Choose Canada!
