Fellowships and Grants
2009-2010 Dr. Edward Hildebrand Fellowship for Canadian Studies at UCLA
About the Program:
Established in 2001, the Canadian Studies Program at UCLA fosters a better understanding of Canadian society and its relationship with the United States.
The program’s ambition is to train a new breed of policy-makers knowledgeable about Canadian society and well-versed in Canada-U.S. relations and affairs. With their Canadian counterparts, these young professionals will make wise and thoughtful decisions for the sustainable and long-term development and well-being of the North American Community, whether these relate to our security, public health, the environment, or economic relations. The Edward Hildebrand Fellowship was made possible by an endowed gift of $500,000 from the estate of Dr. Edward Hildebrand to support graduate students pursuing a course of studies related to Canadian Studies.
