The Canadian Studies Program invites currently registered UCLA graduate students to apply for a small research/conference award to support either: 1. Research in Canada or, 2. Travel to Canada to attend a scholarly conference or workshop to present a talk or poster related to their field of research. All fields of study are open for support. The award may be combined with other support such as graduate travel grants.  UCLA travel accounting practices and regulations will pertain to these awards. Successful applicants will be expected to provide a one page synopsis of their activities and findings at the end of the award. One or more awards with maximum award amount of $1000 each will be provided for the 2018 Academic Year and 2018 Summer.


Applicants should provide a single pdf with a one page proposal (this may include a preliminary abstract for conference requests), a brief budget for use of the funds, a short CV and copy of current UCLA transcript. A short recommendation from the student’s graduate advisor should also be included. Deadline for applications, including recommendation is December 11, 2017. Awards will be announced in February, 2018.
