The Government of Canada is pleased to announce the 2006 competition 
under the Canadian Studies Faculty Research Award Program for research, 
including travel, to be undertaken during the period April 1, 2007 -- 
February 28, 2008. The deadline for applications is NOVEMBER 30, 2006. 
An application form is attached.

This program is designed to assist individual academics in higher 
education institutions to undertake short-term research about Canada or 
on aspects of Canada’s bilateral relations with Uruguay. The purpose is 
to increase knowledge and understanding of Canada through publication 
abroad of pertinent articles in the scholarly press. The award assists 
with direct costs related to the research project, and, when a research 
trip to Canada is warranted, provides assistance towards international 
airfare and a weekly flat rate allowance.


Awards may be granted for research in any of the following categories:

Ÿ Canadian topics within the social sciences and the humanities, such as 
business studies, economics, law, international relations, history, 
politics, sociology, geography, arts, literature, linguistics, 
education, communications policy, media studies, planning, science 
policy, social administration, environmental studies, architecture, and 
other related fields;

-interdisciplinary studies on Canada;

-comparative studies in which Canada represents a substantial part of 
the work, normally 50%;

-aspects of Canada’s bilateral relations with Uruguay.

Priority may be given to projects that relate to contemporary situations 
and issues which illuminate options for future developments, or which 
focus on Canada’s bilateral relations with Uruguay. For those subjects 
such as geography, which have a physical element, priority will be given 
to applications which demonstrate the humanities and social sciences 

[Purely scientific subjects such as physics, chemistry, medicine, 
engineering, etc. which would not lead to a better knowledge and 
understanding of Canada per se are not eligible, nor are proposals which 
focus exclusively on technological or methodological issues].


Applicants must:

-be members of the academic staff of a recognized institution of higher 
education or equivalent degree-granting institute; or scholars at 
research and policy planning institutes who undertake significant 
Canadian bilateral relations research projects; professors emeritus may 
also apply; (part-time lecturers and teaching assistants are not eligible);

-hold a degree equivalent to a postgraduate qualification (Master’s or 
PhD); applications will be considered from applicants without these 
formal qualifications only if successful research experience can be 

-be proficient in either English or French.

Recipients of an award under this program are not eligible to apply in 
consecutive competitions. There will normally also be a period of 3 
years between awards, unless the article resulting from the first award 
is already submitted and accepted for publication. For example, a 
2005-06 recipient cannot apply in the 2006-07 competition, but can apply 
in the 2007-08 competition if the article resulting from the first award 
is already submitted and accepted for publication; otherwise, one will 
only be eligible to apply in the 2008-09 competition.


The award will consist of a contribution towards international airfare 
of up to $1,650Cdn for destinations in Eastern and Central Canada, and 
$2,000Cdn for destinations in Western Canada and British Columbia, and 
an allowance of $800Cdn per complete week of stay in Canada to assist 
with costs of domestic travel and living expenses for a maximum of four 
weeks. Smaller awards may be made.


The Government of Canada, through the Canadian Embassy, Montevideo, will 
make grants to successful candidates in accordance with the following 

-the applicant will personally apply for an award and will carry out 
his/her own research, which is neither part of contractual or 
commissioned research, nor part of his/her formal program of studies 
leading to a degree;

-awards are granted for work to be carried out in either the applicant’s 
country of residence and/or Canada, and are intended to assist in 
defraying only direct costs related to a project, including return 
travel to Canada and related expenses, use of equipment (but not capital 
purchases), purchase of books and other materials, some secretarial 
services, and, possibly, some publishing costs; no provision is made for 
released time stipends nor for overhead costs to the institution;

-the applicant will make all arrangements relating to the research 
project, including:

-international travel,

-visa and passport (if needed),

-accommodation and travel within Canada,

-medical insurance while in Canada,

-visit plans, including, inter alia appointments with Canadian academics 
and other resource persons, access to libraries and other study centres, 

- two copies of the manuscript, of publishable quality and the length of 
a normal scholarly journal article, produced as a result of the research 
award will be sent to the Canadian Embassy, along with a summary in 
English or French, upon completion of the project, and no later than 
March 1st of the completion year. Failure to provide such manuscript by 
that date may result in the forfeiture of the final payment of the 
award. (One copy of the manuscript will be sent by the Canadian Embassy 
to the awards program administrators, the International Council for 
Canadian Studies, Ottawa, for possible onward transmission to the 
National Library of Canada; the other copy will be retained by the 
Canadian Embassy);

- the applicant will make every reasonable attempt to publish the 
research article on Canada produced as a result of an award; while not a 
condition of an award, sharing of the results in other for a such as 
conferences and seminars is encouraged;

researcher. When it is published, the researcher will provide two copies 
of the article to the Canadian Embassy, to be held as described above.
