2017-2018 Chancellor Jackman Graduate Fellows in the Humanities
Graduate Fellowships are open to PhD candidates in the humanities at the University of Toronto who will be in the final year of writing their dissertation and beyond the final year of the University of Toronto graduate funding package during the year when they hold the fellowship.
The recipients of this fellowship hold an office at the JHI and participate in weekly luncheon seminars, presenting their own work to the other Fellows at some point during the year. Graduate Fellows do not work as Teaching Assistants or course instructors during the year of their appointment in order to concentrate on completing their dissertations. Applicants for Graduate Fellowships are nominated by their departments, and must have completed at least two full chapters of their thesis at the time of application. They are selected by the incoming Faculty Research Fellows on the basis of scholarship and scholarly promise, as well as the relationship of their topic to the Annual Theme.
Applications (nominations) are currently being solicited. Classics PhD students who are eligible and interested, please get in touch with Classics Graduate Coordinator by Monday March 20, 2017.
The selection process is completed by May. Approximately three Graduate Fellows are appointed each year.
Up to two graduate students may be nominated by each department or EDU. Applicants must be currently registered in the 2016-17 year in a humanities Ph.D. with 2017-18 as their final year, with completion of their Ph.D. thesis anticipated by the end of the year. Applicants for the Chancellor Jackman Graduate Student Fellowship will be beyond the funded cohort in their fellowship year; applicants for the Amilcare Iannucci Graduate Fellow will be in the final year of funding in their fellowship year; and all applicants must have two (2) completed chapters of the thesis at the time of the application.
