Fulbright Visiting Research Chairs are intended for Canadian citizens who are exceptional scholars and/or experienced professionals who wish to conduct research and/or lecture in the United States.
Fulbright Canada Visiting Research Chairs are pre-arranged affiliations that allow scholars to conduct research/lecture on subjects important to that university. Partner universities are excited to welcome the Fulbright Visiting Chairs into campus life and encourage them to engage with students, faculty, and the broader community. Fulbright Visiting Research Chairs can guest lecture in university courses, mentor students, lecture in public venues, network, and promote their research, while representing the Fulbright program, and their home and host institutions.
The award is valued at $25,000 for one semester beginning in either September or January. The 2016-17 competition deadline is November 15, 2015. Applications become available on May 15th, 2015. (Applicants who will not have a Ph.D. in hand at the time they would take up their award, should they be successful in the competition, must apply to the Fulbright Canada Student Program.)
