FLAS Information

The Canadian Studies Center is particularly interested in areas of study and research that have policy relevance for the Canada-U.S. relationship or that address Canada’s role in the world. These include environmental management, urban planning, issues emerging in the Arctic region, Indigenous self-determination in Canada, civil engineering, human security and capacity, public health, and the promotion of nations within a nation. Applicants must articulate a clear interest in integrating Canadian content into their research.

Graduate students may apply for French and are strongly encouraged to apply for Inuktut. Undergraduate students are not eligible to apply for French and may apply for Inuktut when appropriate course levels are available, i.e., intermediate or advanced levels.

Undergraduate students interested in studying abroad in Canada can apply to the Corbett and/or Killam Fellowships.
