The Calgary Institute for the Humanities invites applications for Fellowships to full time faculty at the University of Calgary to conduct research at the Institute during the academic year 2022-23. All scholars with teaching appointments at the University of Calgary that continue through the 2022-23 academic year are eligible to apply. Awards are subject to budgetary approval.
Four annual Resident Fellowships are awarded to outstanding scholars in order to pursue a particular research project. Two of these are named: The Wayne O. McCready Resident Fellowship for an Emerging Scholar, and the Naomi Lacey Resident Fellowship. Success in the competition for these fellowships is based on assessment of the scholarly record of the candidate and the quality of the research proposal.
Application Deadline: 27th November 2022
Eligible Countries: All
To be taken at (country): Canada
Number of Awardees: 4
Value of Scholarship: These four (4) fellowships will normally provide partial release from teaching duties to facilitate concentration on a research project. You must be free from administrative responsibilities and teach at a reduced course load during the Fellowship.
Your department/faculty will arrange for partial teaching release funding with the Institute. This will be a full-course equivalent course release (2HCE). Fellows will receive one HCE course release each term, unless alternative arrangements are made with the director. Fellows will not receive a direct stipend.
- Applicants whom the committee judge to be on the verge of a significant scholarly advancement may be considered for the Wayne O. McCready Resident Fellowship for an Emerging Scholar.
- Full-time faculty of the University of Calgary who have previously held an Annual Fellowship are eligible for a second Annual Fellowship five years after the completion of the first Annual Fellowship. Applications from previous Annual Fellows will not be considered separately but will be considered within the pool of all applications.
- Applications will be judged on research record and the merits of the proposed project.
How to Apply: Applications must contain;
- Proposal Statement
- Department head’s statement
