Call for applications: Connaught PhDs for Public Impact Fellowship – January 29 deadline

The School of Graduate Studies has launched the next cycle of the ConnaughtPhDs for Public Impact  Fellowship Program. This program aims to support PhD students as they make connections outside the university through innovative forms of public scholarly communication.   

Fellows from the Connaught PhDs for Public Impact Fellowship will focus on engaging the public through a scholarly agenda. This engagement can take a range of forms, from describing scholarly work in a public forum to partnering with a school, community organization, or cultural institution in an ongoing two-way exchange of knowledge and practices. 

Program overview: 

  • Fifteen fellows are chosen every year 
  • Applicants must be full-time PhD/SJD students at the University of Toronto in good academic standing in their programs for the duration of the fellowship 
  • Each fellow will be awarded $12,500: a $10,000 fellowship as a top-up to their stipend and $2,500 towards project expenses and/or professional development 
  • Fellowship applications are due by January 29
