Ireland Canada University Foundation (ICUF)

The relationship between Canada and Ireland is strong, far reaching and deeply rooted in history. Since its foundation in 1993, it has been the objective of the Ireland Canada University Foundation to promote the ongoing development of links between these countries. This will be done through the awarding of scholarships to individuals whose work fulfills one or more of the following criteria; builds academic linksĀ  develops cultural understandingĀ  leads to increased trade between Canada and IrelandĀ  supports the development of the Irish language and linguistic diversity in both countries. The Foundation operates two principal programmes annually. The first is the Dobbin Scholarship Programme which grants awards of short term visiting scholarships to both Irish and Canadian scholars in support of their research which relates to both countries, and the second is the Irish Language Programme which supports the growth and development of the Irish language in Canada. Please note: due to the volume of enquiries, and the scaled down nature of administration, we are unable to deal with telephone enquiries. All enquiries must be made by email.
