2021-2022 Doctoral Research Fellowship Award Competition Now Open

05 February 2021

After the temporary suspension of the competition due to the Covid-19 public health emergency last year, the Wirth Institute is pleased to announce that we are now accepting applications for five Doctoral Research Fellowship Awards.
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.
Note that the deadline for receipt of applications for fellowships starting 1 September, 2021 is 26 April, 2021. Due to the Covid-19 public health emergency, potential travel restrictions may necessitate that finalists be interviewed online.
