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.
Traditional Fulbright 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 center of their choice in the United States.
Specialization: While the competition is open to all disciplines, Fulbright Canada is particularly interested in encouraging research on contemporary issues relevant to Canada, the United States and the relationship between the two countries. Applicants should also clearly document the need to be in residence in Canada to carry out the project.
- Be a Canadian citizen (Permanent residence is not sufficient).
- Hold a Ph.D. or equivalent professional/terminal degree as appropriate.
Candidates outside academia (e.g., professionals, artists) with recognized professional standing and substantial professional accomplishments.
- Be proficient in English.
- Be in compliance with all J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board (FFSB) guidelines.
- Be in compliance with all governmental regulations regarding visas, immigration, travel and residence.
Applicants must not:
- Be a dual U.S.-Canadian citizen.
- Hold permanent residency status in the United States.
- Reside in the United States.
- Have resided abroad for five or more consecutive years in the six year period immediately preceding the date of application.
A period of nine months or more during a calendar year is considered to constitute a full year abroad.
The award is a fixed sum of US$25,000 for a full academic year (nine months) or $12,500 for one semester. A Health Benefit Plan is also provided. Enrichment opportunities in the United States are available through the Outreach Lecturing Funds. Faculty sabbatical, leave-of-absence, or retirement pay may be used concurrently with Fulbright support.
All awards are subject to available funding, approval by the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board (FFSB), and compliance with FFSB guidelines.
