2. The Centre for Studies in Religion and Society at UVic offers fellowships ($5000 plus a private office for a year) to people in the thesis or dissertation phases of their graduate programs. Visits of less than a year are also possible.
These fellowships will allow students to be part of a vital interdisciplinary intellectual and social space in which they can focus on their writing. Over the last 25 years, we have been fortunate to host visiting graduate students from many other universities. Now, we are able to offer some funding to help support visiting students interested in completing their writing within a unique scholarly environment.
Most applicants would already have external funding from SSHRC or their home university. So, our funding would not cover all expenses, but it should make a significant contribution. The deadline for applications is the middle of November, 2017 and the fellowships would begin sometime after spring, 2018.
Students interested in this opportunity should contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org), or my colleague Sally Lin (email@example.com).
