Award recipients include Canadian citizens who are graduate students, prospective graduate students, or junior professionals.

APPLICANTS CAN APPLY FOR

1) Traditional Fulbright Student Awards: US$20,000 for one nine-month academic year. These all-discipline awards can be taken up at any college, university, think tank, or government agency in the United States.

2) Fulbright Foreign Language Teaching Assistant Program (FLTA): US$400-$600 stipend per month (commensurate with average cost of living in host city) OR an in-kind contribution of free housing or meal plan. Additionally, visa services, health insurance, and a bursary to complete two courses per semester on an audit or credit basis are included. The Fulbright Canada FLTA program is specifically designed to attract early career Canadian Francophone students and teachers who want to teach and study in the United States. In this instance, early career is defined as no more than seven years of teaching experience.

Excellence in scholarship, diversity, and community service are the hallmarks of the Fulbright Program.
