Fulbright Canada Science, Technology, Engineering and Math Awards

 

I am writing you today to draw your attention to the current Fulbright
Canada competition for American students and scholars.  Fulbright Canada
offers a wide range of residential exchange opportunities for American
undergraduates, graduate students, and scholars.   Of particular interest, I
would like to draw your attention to the new program: the Fulbright Canada
Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) Awards.  The STEM Awards,
provided in co-operation with the Department of Foreign Affairs and
International Trade and six of Canada’s leading research universities, offer
US students the opportunity to complete a PhD in science, technology,
engineering, or math in Canada.  This award, valued at $120K over three
years (including tuition, fees, and an annual stipend of $20,000),
represents a tremendous opportunity for science, engineering and math
students seeking a challenging, world-class academic opportunity.  Full
details are listed below with contact information and deadlines. 

If you have any questions about Fulbright Canada or have an interest in
partnering with the Canadian Consulate General in Chicago for future
academic programs and initiatives, please feel free to contact my Academic
Relations Officer Colleen Duke at colleen.duke at international.gc.ca <
<mailto:colleen.duke at international.gc.ca>
mailto:colleen.duke at international.gc.ca>  or (312) 327-3614.   Our goal is
to work with you to help faculty and students better understand this key
bi-national relationship and raise awareness of exciting and valuable
opportunities for US students and universities. 

Sincerely,
Georges Rioux
Consul General


Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Award for U.S. Graduate
Students

The Fulbright Canada Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math Award is a
new initiative of the Foundation for Educational Exchange between Canada and
the United States of America (Fulbright Canada), in cooperation with the
Department of Foreign Affairs and International  Trade Canada and six of
Canada’s leading research universities. The STEM award, which is a three
year award valued at some $120,000 (tuition, fees, and an annual stipend of
$20,000), is the counterpart to Fulbright’s International Science and
Technology award for foreign students coming to the United States.  

Canada is the home to top-ranked research institutions and leading research
scientists. As such, Canada is a premier destination for scientific study
and research.  The Fulbright Canada STEM Award will offer an opportunity for
a select group of U.S. students to pursue their PhD in Canada. They will
study, conduct research, and be inspired in a technologically-advanced,
diverse, and dynamic country.   

Fulbright Canada has partnered with the following universities to provide
the very best opportunities in both basic and applied fields of science,
engineering and mathematics: McGill University, Université de Montéal,
University of Alberta, University of British Columbia, University of
Toronto, and the University of Waterloo. Fulbright Canada will work closely
with the award recipients, partner universities, and our cooperating
agencies in the United States to ensure the most appropriate for the
grantee.
