DFAIT Scholarshisp Overview

CANCELLATION OF THE UNDERSTANDING CANADA - CANADIAN STUDIES PROGRAM

Please note that further to the announcements in the 2012 budget, the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada (DFAIT) has decided to abolish the Understanding Canada-Canadian Studies Program. Therefore, there will be no further grants issued under this program.


The first DFAIT programs in support of Canadian Studies were established over 25 years ago. Since 1987, a number of them were under the administrative responsibility of the ICCS, following renewed contractual and contribution agreements with the International Education and Youth Division of Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada (DFAIT).
