Awards

If you’re a scholar and academic, this scholarship is intended to support you in the early stages of your academic career.

Our programme is designed for those 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.

Amount of the award

The amount of the award depends on the length of the research visit, and is based on durations of between two and four weeks. The details of the visits are left to the scholars to decide on and arrange for themselves.

Canadian Scholarships

  • Travel expenses up to a total of CAD 1,300 will be paid to scholars (on transfer of receipts to ICUF).
