External Scholarships for Canadian, Canadian Studies Students
Canadian Studies Graduate Student Fellowship
The Doctoral Student Research Award promotes research that contributes to a better knowledge and understanding of Canada, its relationship with the United States, and its international affairs. The grant is designed to give doctoral students an opportunity to conduct part of their research in Canada. We welcome efforts to integrate the research findings into the applicant's conference presentations.
Canadian-US Fullbright Scholarship
The mandate of the Canada-U.S. Fulbright Program is to increase mutual understanding between the people of Canada and the people of the United States of America. The program strengthens bi-national 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.
The Canada-U.S. Fulbright Program operates on the principle of reciprocal exchange and provides the opportunity for exceptional Canadian and American students and scholars to lecture, research and pursue graduate study in the United States and Canada, respectively
The International Council for Canadian Studies
This organization has two scholarship programs for Canadian Studies students.
ICCS Graduate Student Thesis/Dissertation Scholarships support the work of young scholars by enabling successful candidates to spend 4-6 weeks at a Canadian university to conduct research related to their thesis or dissertation.
Canadian Studies Postdoctoral Fellowships
Enable young Canadian and foreign academics who have completed a doctoral thesis on a topic primarily related to Canada to visit a Canadian or foreign university with a Canadian Studies program for a teaching or research fellowship.
THEM/HiER Funding Programs
THEN/HiER is the first pan-Canadian organization devoted to promoting—and improving—history teaching and learning by bringing together the multiple and varied constituencies involved in history education: academic historians; public historians in museums, archives and historic sites; practicing teachers; researchers based in faculties of education; and curriculum policy makers. Their goal is to stimulate an active, participatory dialogue among these various communities of history educators, a dialogue that explores how best to improve history education in all its forms through more research-informed practice (from kindergarten to graduate school) and more practice-informed research.
This organization has several programs for students focused on Canadian Studies Including:
THEN/HiER Bursaries for the 2010 Benchmarks of Historical Thinking Summer Institute
Visiting Doctoral Student Program
Are you a doctoral student wanting to enrich your research by networking with faculty in fields related to history education at another Canadian university? THEN/HiER's Visiting Doctoral Student Program provides funding for a limited number of doctoral students to benefit from such interaction.
Small Projects Grants Program
THEN/HiER will provide up to $2,500 for a collaborative project related to history education.
Large Projects Grants Program
For projects requesting between $2,500 and $15,000.
