Visiting Researcher Fellowships in Western Canadian Studies

St John’s College (SJC), University of Manitoba, invites applications for Visiting Researcher Fellowships. Fellowships provide resources, space and community for scholars from a variety of disciplinary perspectives, whose work focuses on the study of Western Canada.

St John’s College is Western Canada’s oldest post-secondary institution, established in 1866. It became a founding College of the University of Manitoba in 1877. The College has been an important home for Canadian Studies research since the 1970s. Recipients of the Fellowship will be part of a lively and engaged scholarly community.

Fellows will have office space, access to administrative support, and library privileges. Other on-campus resources include University of Manitoba Archives and Special Collections, and the National Centre for Truth and Reconciliation (NCTR). The Hudson’s Bay Company Archives are also located in Winnipeg.

Available Support: Short-term fellowships ($1500) of 1-2 months duration; Longterm fellowships ($3000) 3-6 months. The College will consider applications for full year fellowships, depending on availability of space, but the maximum support remains $3000.The fellowships also have a small budget for a workshop, colloquium, or lecture in an area of Western Canadian studies. Visiting Researchers are expected to organize an event as condition of the award.

Eligibility: Research fellowships are open to academic faculty from any university, at all stages of career, and post-doctoral researchers, working in the area of Western Canadian studies.

The next application deadline for fellowships is June 15, 2019.
