Canada Asia-Pacific Awards

This award will support scholars in universities or research institutes in the Asia-Pacific Region to undertake short term research, including collaborative research, contributing to the understanding of bilateral and multilateral relations between Canada and the countries of the Asia-Pacific Region. The award will assist with direct costs related to the research project, and, when a research trip to Canada is warranted, will provide assistance towards international airfare and a weekly flat rate allowance for a period not exceeding five weeks.

Awards may be granted for:
  1. Research projects related to Canada and Asia-Pacific relations, either with the region as a whole, or any part thereof. Although we welcome applications from all disciplines lending themselves most readily to Canadian Studies we are particularly interested in projects that have policy relevance for Canada and Canada’s foreign policy. Topics that are highly relevant to Canada’s foreign policy include Democracy & Rule of Law, Economic Development and Prosperity, Environment, Managing Diversity, North American Partnership, Peace and Security. 
  2. Interdisciplinary or multidisciplinary studies; or
  3. Comparative studies with substantial Canadian content (33% or more);
Priority may be given to projects, which relate Canada’s foreign policy; or contemporary situations and issues which illuminate options for future developments; or which focus on Canada’s bilateral relations. (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). 

Awards will be available to scholars and researchers from all countries of the Asia-Pacific Region. Applications are to be submitted by the designated principal researcher, with the official endorsement of his/her institution.

1. be full-time members of the academic staff of a recognized institution of higher education or equivalent degree-granting institution in the Asia-Pacific Region, or scholars at research and policy planning institutes who undertake significant Canadian bilateral and/or multilateral relations research projects;
2. hold a degree equivalent to a Master's or better;
3. have a working knowledge of either English or French.

The Canada-Asia-Pacific Award will consist of a grant in the amount of up to CDN $10,000, based on the analysis of the proposed budget needed to do the research. More than one award may be offered annually. Successful candidates will not be able to make a new application until they demonstrate that they have fulfilled the terms and conditions of their previous award.
