Call for Nominations, 2018-2019
Applications will be accepted starting on 15 February 2018.
The Jackman Humanities Institute (JHI) of the University of Toronto welcomes nominations from Humanities Departments and Ph.D. granting Centres and Institutes for three Chancellor Jackman Graduate Fellows (for post-funding cohort doctoral students) and one Amilcare Iannucci Graduate Fellow in the Humanities (for doctoral students in their final year of cohort funding) for the 2018-2019 year. Each unit may nominate up to two candidates (either two for Jackman fellowships, or one for a Jackman fellowship + one for an Iannucci fellowship), selecting candidates through their graduate executive or by their graduate coordinator.
The value of a Chancellor Jackman Graduate Student Fellowship in the Humanities is normally $22,500 plus the cost of the year’s tuition. Fellows may be assigned to research assistantships of a value up to $500 during their Fellowship. Chancellor Jackman Graduate Fellows will be in their final year of work on the thesis, with at least two chapters completed. This fellowship is for students who will be beyond the funded cohort for their program during the fellowship year, and who may be Canadian or international students. Three awards will be made.
The value of the Amilcare Iannucci Graduate Fellowship in the Humanities is normally $9,000 in stipend relief (to cover the portion of the graduate funding package allotted for assignment as a Teaching Assistant) and in addition a top up of $3,000 beyond the guaranteed funding package. This fellow is for students who will be in the final year of the funded cohort in the fellowship year and may be a Canadian or international student. Recipients who have also been awarded a CGS or a Vanier will receive only a top-up award of $3,000. Fellows may be assigned to research assistantships of a value up to $500 during their Fellowship. One award will be made.
As residential fellows, the graduate fellows will be provided with offices at the JHI on the 10th floor of the Jackman Humanities Building. They will be expected to participate in activities with faculty and postdoctoral fellows, including weekly lunch seminars and occasional other workshops and lectures.
