The Canadian Studies Program is an interdisciplinary research center that promotes the study and research of Canada. We are one of the most active programs of our kind in the United States, with a mission encompasses funding research and public education on Canada at UC Berkeley.
No, the Canadian Studies program does not enroll students or grant degrees (majors/minors).
Canadian Studies will cover direct research costs associated with specific projects. These include, but are not limited to, travel expenses, supplies and equipment, and subscriptions and archive fees. The program will not cover general stipends, university fees, or in-state living expenses.
Each fellowship and award has different requirements and deadlines. Please see the specific grant page for more information.
All enrolled UC Berkeley students are eligible to apply for funding from Canadian Studies, regardless of major or discipline.
Any permanent UC Berkeley faculty member with a research focus, personal background, or general interest in Canada is welcome to ask for affiliation.
