Annually, the Canon Foundation in Europe grants up to 15 Fellowships to highly qualified European and Japanese researchers. The candidates hold a doctorate or at least a Master’s degree. They are eligible during the ten-year period following the successful completion of their PhD or MA degree. The Fellowships are awarded for periods of minimum three months and maximum one year. The Fellowships are awarded regardless of discipline and existing employment positions.
NB: Open to EU and Japanese nationals only; application deadline, September 15, 2008. Over half of the fellowships from 1996-2006 have been awarded to researchers in the humanities.
