Inaugural CIC Fellows, 2008. CIC

Fellowship Program

The CIC’s fellowship program attracts established researchers and foreign policy professionals, as well as Canada’s most promising young minds, providing them with the opportunity to help guide Canada on pressing foreign policy issues. Open to academic, public policy, business, media and other professionals with international expertise, the CIC awards a limited number of fellowships across Canada each year, creating an interdisciplinary team of experts, each focused on a particular issue area. Working both independently and collectively, CIC fellows devote six to 12 months to working on a specific research project initiative, with the goal of creating new insights and policy-relevant findings.

Contact msedra@thecic.org if you are interested in the fellowship program.
