John G. Diefenbaker Award
The John G. Diefenbaker Award is funded by an endowment given to the Canada Council for the Arts by the Government of Canada. The award is given annually, and it enables a distinguished German scholar to do research in Canada, which may include brief periods in the United States. While research must be the primary activity during the award period, the award recipient will be encouraged to participate in the teaching activities of the host institution and to interact with the research communities in Canada and the United States by visiting other institutions. The spirit of the award is to encourage exchange between scholarly communities in Canada and Germany.
