2014-2015 Doctoral Research Fellowship Programs Now Open

09 April 2014

The Wirth Institute would like to announce the competition for its 2014-2015 Doctoral Research Fellowship Programs.

Students currently enrolled in doctoral programs in any field in Fine and Performing Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences in universities in 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.
