BECA EN ESTUDIS CANADENCS PER A PROFESSORS. INVESTIGACIO.
Guidelines
This program is designed to assist individual academics in higher
education institutions to undertake short-term research about Canada
or on an aspect of Canada's bilateral relations with the participating
countries. The purpose is to increase knowledge and understanding of
Canada through publication of pertinent articles in the foreign or
international 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:
1.
Although we welcome applications from all disciplines lending
themselves most readily to Canadian Studies research development,
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, Environment, Managing
Diversity, North American Partnership, Peace and Security.
interdisciplinary studies on Canada;
2.
Comparative studies with substantial Canadian content (33% or
more);
3.
Aspects of Canada's bilateral relations with participating
countries.
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 the
participating countries. For those subjects such as geography, which
have a physical element, priority will be given to applications which
demonstrate the humanities and social sciences aspect.
(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).
Eligibility
Applicants must:
1.
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);
2.
hold a degree equivalent to a postgraduate qualification (Master’s
or Ph.D.); applications will be considered from applicants without
these formal qualifications only if successful research experience
can be demonstrated;
3.
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 2004-05 recipient cannot apply in the 2005-06 competition, but can
apply in the 2006-07 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 2007-08
competition.
Terms and Conditions
The International Council for Canadian Studies through a contribution
of the Government of Canada and with the assistance of the appropriate
Canadian Mission, will award grants to successful candidates on
condition that the candidate must give a written undertaking on
his/her own behalf that:
1.
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;
2.
awards are normally granted only 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,
rental 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;
3.
the applicant will make all arrangements relating to the research
project, including: international travel arrangements; 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, etc.;
4.
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 local Canadian Mission
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 a manuscript by that date may result in
forfeiture of the final payment of the award. (One copy of the

National Library of Canada; the other copy will be retained by the
local Canadian Mission for purposes of consultation in the
participating country.
5.
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 fora
such as conferences and seminars is encouraged;
6.
the rights to the manuscript will remain the exclusive property of
the researcher. When it is published the researcher will provide
two copies of the article or book to the local Canadian Mission,
to be held as described above.

Canadian Mission, and normally six weeks before departure for Canada.
The remaining 30% will be paid upon return from Canada and upon
submission to the local Canadian Mission of the related manuscript, of
publishable quality and the length of a normal scholarly journal
article, and of a completed claim form outlining plans or prospects
