Helen Darcovich Memorial Doctoral Fellowship in Education, History, Humanities, Social Sciences, Law, and Library Sciences 2020-2021

The Darcovich Memorial Doctoral Fellowship (up to C$12,500), is awarded annually to a student writing a dissertation on a Ukrainian or Ukrainian-Canadian topic in one of the above areas. Because funding is for dissertation work only, all other degree requirements must be completed by the time the award is taken up. Fellowship holders may apply for a one-year renewal.
Applications will be judged on a points system based on the dissertation proposal, letters of reference, writing sample, academic grades, and publishing record. Canadian citizens and permanent residents of Canada, who may hold the fellowship at any institution of higher learning, and foreign students enrolled at the University of Alberta, will receive extra points.
