Awards administered by CIUS

A primary aim of the Canadian Institute of Ukrainian Studies is to foster, develop and support Ukrainian studies in Canada and internationally. This is done in part by offering or administering a postdoctoral fellowship, graduate fellowships (to master’s and doctoral students) and scholarships to undergraduate students. Grants are also awarded to established scholars to support research work that would lead to publications or dissemination of results in other forms.

Descriptions of awards offered are provided on this site. Please familiarize yourself with the terms of the award before applying. Application forms and guidelines can be downloaded directly from this site, or electronic versions can be sent by e-mail. Hard copies can also be obtained by requesting such in writing. Applications must be sent to us by fax or by mail. The deadline for receipt of all applications is March 1. All applicants are notified of the results of the competition they applied for by e-mail or by mail.

If you represent an institution which would want to advertise our awards, please contact us and indicate which advertisements you would like to receive. Further information on CIUS grants, fellowships and scholarships can obtained by contacting us.
