Cambridge Canadian Studies Initiative (CCSI)

Cambridge Canadian Studies Initiative (CCSI)

Funding Opportunities, Awards, and Programs

The following is a list of funds, programs, and awards that may be of interest to Cambridge researchers. The awards vary widely in their terms and requirements, but many can be put toward Canada-related research or teaching, or toward developing research links with Canadian institutions. Many of these opportunities are not widely advertised and are currently underutilized by the Cambridge community. While few of the programs would be sufficient to fund entire projects, several of them could be used as valuable sources of supplementary funds. The International Linkages Project, for example, provides grants of up to $10,000 CDN.

The list also contains links for Canadian students wishing to study in the UK, and for UK students wishing to study in Canada.

In cases where awards can be viewed on two different websites, two links are given.
