New Application Deadline: Eakin Visiting Fellowship in Canadian Studies


Published: 14Jan2021

MISC is now accepting applications for the Eakin Visiting Fellowship in Canadian Studies for the 2021/2022 academic year. **Please note that the deadline has been extended to January 31.**

The Fellowship is awarded for periods of one or two academic semesters to an active scholar focusing on studies related to Canada. It is awarded to a scholar with a Ph.D., normally on sabbatical from their own academic institution. The Fellowship will offer a stipend of $15,000 per semester.

The position is open, in terms of rank and discipline, to dynamic scholars who can enrich the study of Canada with fresh perspectives. The Fellowship may also be awarded to an individual outside of the academic community, whose writing, research or public career are making a significant contribution to intellectual life in Canada.

The incumbent is expected to teach one undergraduate course in Canadian Studies at McGill University, deliver the Eakin Lecture (one Fellow per year), participate in the activities of the Institute, and pursue exchanges with colleagues at McGill and other institutions.
