In 2008, the China Institute (CIUA) launched its Multiple Funding Programs. Since then, CIUA has been offering funding to faculty members, researchers and students at the University of Alberta supporting their China related activities as well as to bring distinguished scholars to campus to share their knowledge and research. These activities have greatly strengthened linkages between the UAlberta and partner universities in China, and promote the level of understanding of China on campus.

CIUA offers:

  1. Faculty and Student Travel Grants to faculty members and students
  2. Research Grants to faculty members
  3. Special Faculty Initiatives supporting conferences, lectures and seminars
