Traditional Fulbright Canada Student Awards

Traditional Fulbright Canada Student awards are intended for Canadian citizens who are graduate students, prospective graduate students, or promising young professionals who wish to study and/or conduct research in the United States. Awards may be held at any university, research centre, think tank, or government agency in the United States.

Canadian students can take up the award in one of three ways:

  1. Formal enrolment awards are intended for students who plan to enroll in a graduate program at an American university. The student must seek admission at the same time as they apply for a Fulbright award. The Traditional Fulbright Canada award would support the first nine months of the student’s graduate degree.
  2. Research awards are intended for students enrolled in a graduate program at a Canadian university, and who wish to conduct research in the United States that will support their Canadian degree. The Traditional Fulbright Canada award would support the student’s nine month academic year in the United States.
  3. Independent research awards are intended for researchers who have completed an undergraduate degree or a master’s degree at a Canadian university and who wish to pursue one academic year of independent research in the United States.
