Asia Pacific Foundation of Canada Announces Grants Program to Support Research on Asia Pacific Region

As part of the Foundation's Canada Asia Pacific Research Network (CAPRN), this program will fund research activities, conferences, graduate and media fellowships, and special initiatives. These activities will in turn assist in the enhancement of Canadian capacity for public policy research and analysis focusing on the Asia Pacific region.

Asia Pacific Research Grants will be available in four categories: Policy Research Grants; Post-Graduate Research Fellowships; Media Fellowships; Special Initiative Funding.
