Ireland Canada University Foundation

Encouraging and facilitating links between scholars in Ireland and Canada

Awards

The awards are designed principally for scholars and academics who are either beginning or are currently engaged at graduate level research in a discipline which is, or has potential to be, related to both Ireland and Canada.

The ICUF Scholarships are for short visits of two to four weeks which will;

  • benefit the scholar’s research,
  • establish new or build on existing academic links between Canada and Ireland, and
  • provide the opportunity for the development of ongoing links in that research area.

Amount of the award:
The amount of the award is contingent on the duration of the research visit, and is based on a duration of between two and four weeks. Awards are structured as follows;

Canadian Scholarships:

  • Travel expenses up to a total of CAD 1,300 will be paid to scholars (on transfer of receipts to ICUF).
  • A weekly stipend of CAD 1,000 will be paid to scholars. This will range from CAD 2,000 (two week visit) to CAD 4,000 (four week visit).

Irish Scholarships

  • Travel expenses up to a total of € 1,000 will be paid to scholars (on transfer of receipts to ICUF).
  • A weekly stipend of € 800 will be paid to scholars. This will range from €1,600 (two week visit) to €3,200 (four week visit).

 

Scholars are of course free to extend the duration of their stay for personal or professional reasons.
