Canada-UK Foundation/Eccles Centre fellowships 2021-22

The Canada-UK Foundation and the Eccles Centre at the British Library are offering two £5000 Fellowships for 2021-2022.

We are keen to hear from all kinds of serious researchers who are based in Canada and working on projects in Canadian studies, including transnational or comparative approaches to Canadian studies. These researchers will have the potential to produce something new, exciting and challenging as a result of their engagement with the Canadian collections of the British Library.

The Fellowships are aimed equally at applicants from academic backgrounds working on scholarly research and creative practitioners working on artistic and cultural projects. This means that research towards a doctoral degree, an academic monograph or article, a poetry collection, a theatre production, a body of painting or sculpture, a new fashion collection … all these kinds of projects, and more, will be considered.

Each Fellowship is a fixed amount of £5,000 and is intended to cover flights, accommodation and other costs associated with a research trip to the British Library. It is expected that the Fellowship will support around two months’ work in the Library. The Fellowship lasts for one year and Fellows will make their research trip(s) between January 2022 and December 2022.

For more information, please see Eccles Centre Fellowships and Awards.  

The deadline for applications to be submitted is 30 September 2021 at 12.00 (BST).
