Student Funding

The Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies hosts one graduate fellowship and two study-in-Canada fellowships for University of Washington undergraduate students – the Killam Fellowships Program and the Gary and Consuelo Corbett Canada-U.S. Fellowships Program. For both programs, UW students pay UW tuition and travel to their Canadian host university as an exchange visitor. 

For Graduates

Foreign Language and Area Studies Fellowship
The Canadian Studies Center is a recipient of a U.S. Department of Education Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) Fellowships program grant. The grant provides allocations of academic year and summer fellowships to assist meritorious graduate students undergoing training in modern foreign languages and Canadian Studies. Each fellowship includes an institutional payment and a subsistence allowance. The Canadian Studies Center is extremely proud in having awarded several Fellowships in least-commonly taught Canadian Aboriginal languages including Inuktitut, Dane-zaa, Musqueam Salish, and Anishinaabemowin.

For Undergraduates

The Corbett British Columbia-Washington International Exchange Program Fund provides an opportunity for undergraduate students at the University of Washington to spend two semesters at the University of British Columbia or University of Victoria; and for students from the University of British Columbia and University of Victoria to spend three quarters at the University of Washington.

Killam Fellowships Program provides an opportunity for exceptional UW undergraduate students to spend one semester or a full academic year in Canada. The Killam Fellowships Program offers a fellowship award of $5,000 per semester (up to $10,000 for two semesters).
