PROGRAM

CEFMF’s Short-Term Doctoral Research Grant program supports graduate research in French and Francophone studies at the University of Toronto, as part of its support for graduate education and innovative research. Each year the Centre offers a limited number of short-term travel grants to doctoral students at the University of Toronto whose research focuses on France or the Francophone world. Recipients can use grants to help defray travel costs to libraries and archives, or to conduct field research, in France or other francophone countries.

Information on the 2018-19 competition can be found here.

This year’s deadline is 19 December 2018.
