This page offers information on NACS/ANEC's own scholarships and those offered by Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada and International Council of Canadian Studies.

The NACS/ANEC Student Scholarship (Travel)

The Nordic Association for Canadian Studies (NACS/ANEC) offers up to four (4) student scholarships each year in Canadian Studies, for students studying for a master's degree at a Nordic university, for travel to Canada for research purposes. Each scholarship is for 1200 euro, towards travel and living costs. Three-quarters of the grant will be paid in advance of the research trip, and the remaining one-fourth following submission to NACS of a research report after the thesis has been accepted. Recipients of scholarships will be given one year's initial membership in NACS free of charge, and will be expected to present a report on their research at a suitable NACS event within a year of completion and for publication in the NACS Bulletin.

NB: These scholarships may not be used towards the costs of studying at a Canadian university.

Applications should preferably be written in English. No standard format is required; your application must include a brief CV, project plan, itinerary and estimate of costs, and a letter of recommendation from your supervisor or an equivalent faculty member. 

As from January 2012, there are 3 deadlines each year: 15 January, 15 April, and 15 October
