The Canon Foundation in Europe offers Research Fellowships for projects to be carried out in Europe or Japan. The duration of a Fellowship is normally 12 months, but shorter periods are also possible with a minimum of 3 months. Grants are established at the discretion of the Foundation and based upon the nature of the project. There is 1 application deadline per year, 15 September (for a decision by mid-December). As part of the application procedure, you will be asked to upload the following:

Please highlight the titles of the reprints or abridged versions enclosed.

Your application will be complete on receipt of the 2 reference letters AND the host confirmation letter. You can upload these documents yourself until 30 September OR they can be emailed or posted directly to us at and we will upload them to your application.

If you already submitted your application and are uploading documents at a later date, please click again on the SUBMIT APPLICATION button and we will be informed that a document has been added to your application.

After 30 September, the uploading facility will be closed for applicants so please email any other documents which still need to be uploaded, directly to our office and we will upload it for you.

Because the form has been designed for applicants from the commercial, governmental and academic worlds, parts of the form may be more or less relevant. Applicants will also understand that for a proper appreciation of candidates, the information needs to be particularly comprehensive.

Please note that successful applications may not receive the full amount that they request.

All applicants will be notified of the decision by email.

Candidates should be aware that it is not the Foundation's policy to award Fellowships to those who are already in possession of a concurrent research grant aid from another Foundation authority.

Candidates are specially invited to note that no correspondence is entered into by the Canon Foundation in regard to decisions taken on any individual application and no negative inference should be inferred.
