Foreign Affairs Canada offers Program Development Grants (PDG) to encourage scholarly inquiry and multidisciplinary professional academic activities with a view to contributing to the development or expansion of a Canadian studies program at the applying institution. The program is available in Argentina, India, Japan, and the United States. The award assists with direct costs related to the development or expansion of a Canadian studies program.

Among the activities included for grant consideration are conferences, symposia, lecture series, and the publication of associated proceedings, and scholarly exchanges between Canada and the institution's country. Disciplines lending themselves most readily to Canadian studies program development are the social sciences and the humanities. Purely scientific, technological, or methodological projects which would not lead to a better knowledge and understanding of Canada per se, are not eligible for grants under this program. Long-term program development proposals spanning several years are encouraged.

Because MU is limited to one application for this program, letters of intent must be submitted to the Office of Research,, no later than 4:00 pm Friday, September 14, 2007. Letters of intent should be limited to a three-page summary of the proposed project.


The award amount is unspecified. The maximum grant sum is determined each year and requests are considered up to that amount. In cases of multi-year program development proposals, an annual application must be submitted each year by the application deadline.
