Doctoral Research Fellowships

Fellowships for students from Central Europe

Due to the current public health emergency, the Wirth Institute has had to make the difficult decision to cancel all doctoral research fellowship competitions currently underway. It is planned that the competitions will be reopened in Spring, 2021 for Academic Year 2021-22. 
We encourage all interested and eligible applicants to apply again next year and thank you for your patience and understanding at this time.

Students currently enrolled in doctoral programs in any field in Fine and Performing Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences in universities in Austria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, or Poland and holding citizenship in those countries are invited to join the group of Wirth Fellows in the Faculty of Arts at the University of Alberta.

Since 1998, Central European doctoral students have travelled to Edmonton for year-long research stays as part of the various fellowship programs sponsored by the Institute. Participants can take advantage of the resources of one of Canada's largest research libraries and benefit from the intellectual community of one of the country's leading research universities.
