The Canada-U.S. Fulbright Program strengthens binational collaborative research and promotes thoughtful public debate on topics that reflect the broad range of contemporary issues relevant to Canada, the United States and the relationship between the two countries. This program seeks to provide opportunities for Canadian and American scholars to lecture, research, and study in the other country. It further aims to enhance the study of Canada and the United States, and to encourage and broaden research efforts in the wide range of subjects pertaining to the relationship between the two countries.
The 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 centre of their choice in the United States.
The award is a fixed sum of US$25,000 for a full academic year (nine months) or $12,500 for one semester. Basic health insurance is also provided. Enrichment opportunities are available through the Fulbright Mobility Initiative in Canada and the Occasional Lecturers Program in the United States. Faculty sabbatical, leave-of-absence, or retirement pay may be used concurrently with Fulbright support.
One semester to one full academic year.
