Traditional Fulbright Scholar Awards

Traditional Fulbright Scholar awards for Canadian scholars are open to scholars in all fields (excluding medical training) 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 a university or research centre of their choice in the United States. Applicants must have received a Ph.D. or equivalent professional/terminal degree by December 31, 2012 or have equivalent professional experience.

Fulbright scholarships are awarded for periods ranging from one semester to a full academic year. Ideally, the dates of the award should coincide with the academic year of the host institution. Traditional Fulbright Scholar awards are not available for the summer months only, nor are awards available for attendance at professional conferences or meetings.


The competition for awards taken up in the 2014-15 academic year is now closed. The current competition, for awards to be taken up in the 2015-16 academic year, opens May 15, 2014, and closes November 15, 2014
