Eligibility Graduate Research Awards for Disarmament, Arms Control and Non-Proliferation are offered by The Simons Foundation and The International Security Research and Outreach Programme (ISROP) of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development Canada (DFATD). The primary objective of the Awards is to enhance Canadian graduate level scholarship on disarmament, arms control and non-proliferation issues.

Eight (8) awards of Cdn$3,000.00 are available to Canadian Masters and/or Doctoral students to support the research and writing of short position papers that will be presented at the Graduate Research Awards (GRA) Debates in Ottawa hosted by DFATD. Awards include travel support to Ottawa(domestic transportation, accommodation, and meals) where successful candidates will be invited to present their completed position papers in the form of a one-to-one debate during a special event at DFATD in February 2014.

Canadian citizens and Canadian permanent residents/landed immigrants are eligible to apply, including Canadian graduate students currently studying abroad. For applicants pursuing studies abroad, a limited number of Canadian international students' travel costs may be covered.

Previous recipients of a Graduate Research Award are eligible to apply but priority will be given to students who have not already participated in the programme in order to expand the community of Canadian scholars working on NACD issues.

This year, candidates will address issues related to the Humanitarian Dimensions of Nuclear Weapons; a Middle East WMD Free Zone and the NPT; Australia Group membership; and Counter-Proliferation and Iran.
