Four Annual Fellowships are awarded to outstanding scholars in order to pursue a particular research project. Two of these are named: The Wayne O. McCready Resident Fellowship for an Emerging Scholar, and the Naomi Lacey Resident Fellowship. Success in the competition for these fellowships is based on assessment of the scholarly record of the candidate and the quality of the research proposal.
Fellowships will normally provide partial release from teaching duties to facilitate concentration on a research project. Successful applicants must be free from administrative responsibilities and teach at a reduced course load during the Fellowship. Funding for partial release from teaching—a full-course equivalent course release (2HCE)—will be a matter of arrangement between the Institute and the Fellow’s Department and Faculty. No stipend will be paid directly to Fellows.
Annual Fellows will be expected to conduct their research at the Institute. They will be expected to share their research in a public lecture and in an in-house seminar, and to involve themselves in the community of scholars working at the Institute. The Institute’s support should be acknowledged in all oral and written publications that result from the research supported.
The Calgary Institute for the Humanities invites applications for Fellowships from full-time faculty at the University of Calgary to conduct research at the University during the academic year 2021-22. All scholars with teaching appointments at the University of Calgary that continue through the 2021-22 academic year are eligible to apply. Awards are subject to budgetary approval.
Applicants whom the committee judge to be on the verge of a significant scholarly advancement may be considered for the Wayne O. McCready Resident Fellowship for an Emerging Scholar. Candidates for this fellowship will be considered from the general pool of applicants; no separate application or information is required. Similarly, the Naomi Lacey Fellowship will be awarded to an applicant from the general pool.
Full-time faculty of the University of Calgary who have previously held an Annual Fellowship are eligible for a second Annual Fellowship five years after the completion of the first Annual Fellowship. Applications from previous Annual Fellows will not be considered separately but will be considered within the pool of all applications. In addition to considering the merits of the new project, however, special attention will be paid to the productivity resulting from the first Fellowship.
Applications must contain (i) a curriculum vitae; (ii) a detailed statement of the research proposal with a five page maximum; (iii) a descriptive title and abstract of 150 words; and (iv) a brief statement from the applicant’s Head of Department indicating the Department is aware of the application. Scholars outside of the traditional humanities disciplines should make clear the humanistic orientation of their project.
TERM OF FELLOWSHIP
The term of the fellowship will normally be one year. The fellowship will commence September 1, 2021.
