The Wolfe Chair in Scientific and Technological Literacy 2019-2020 Fellowship Announcement
The Wolfe Chair in Scientific and Technological Literacy is pleased to announce a competition for a limited number of Wolfe Graduate Fellowships for McGill graduate students in the Faculty of Arts whose thesis work reflects the themes of the Chair.
The mandate of the Wolfe Chair is to conduct research, teach and perform public outreach regarding the intellectual foundations, nature and methods of scientific and technological innovation and to provide support to well-rounded students capable of making constructive contributions to debates surrounding science, technology, and society. The Chair is devoted to research that advances understanding of key scientific and technological concepts and examines the relationships among science, technology, and a broad range of social, ethical, political, and economic issues, practices and conditions.
We are seeking outstanding graduate students in the Faculty of Arts conducting research in areas directly related to the themes of the Wolfe Chair. To be eligible, students must have fulfilled all dissertation/thesis proposal requirements for their department. Preference will be given to students who are writing their thesis or dissertation during the 2019-2020 academic year and, in particular, to PhD students during their final year of their program. Graduate students who are registered at PhD 7 or MA 3 during the 2018-2019 academic year are not eligible to apply for this fellowship.
These fellowships (valued at $8000) will be awarded on the basis of high academic standing, community involvement, and athletic activities. Students must be registered as full time graduate students during the 2018-2019 and 2019-2020 academic years to receive funds.
