The Canadian Institute of Ukrainian Studies is pleased to announce its call for applications for funding and awards opportunities in 2023–24.

Established in 1976, the Canadian Institute of Ukrainian Studies (CIUS) is a global leader in the field of Ukrainian Studies. In support of the University of Alberta and Faculty of Arts mission and values, the Institute is dedicated to the production, preservation, and dissemination of expert knowledge about Ukraine and Ukrainians in Canada and worldwide.

This is done in part by offering or administering post-doctoral fellowships, graduate fellowships (to master's and doctoral students), and scholarships to undergraduate students. Grants are also awarded to established scholars in order to support research work that leads to publications or the dissemination of results in other forms.
