The Foundation is interested in scholars that undertake research in the Social Sciences and Humanities and under four themes:
- Human Rights and Dignity,
- Responsible Citizenship,
- Canada and the World, and
- People and their Natural Environment.
- $25,000 for a 4-month residential exchange at the McGill Institute for the Study of Canada (MISC) based at McGill University in Montreal, Quebec
- Access to Fulbright Canada and Trudeau Foundation active and alumni communities and resources
- Additional allowance of up to CDN $15,000 for research, travel and networking
- Eligibility to apply for Fulbright Canada alumni grants to take on community projects
- Opportunity to participate in events hosted by the Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation, including at least one five-day scientific conference hosted by the Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation’s Institutes of Engaged Leadership. The scientific theme for 2020 is Technology & Ethics.
Scholars taking up the joint visiting Chair in Contemporary Public Policy will have the opportunity to participate in at least one five-day scientific conference component of the Trudeau Foundation’s Institutes of Engaged Leadership as a participant, facilitator, teacher and/or speaker, and prepare any key-related readings or material in preparation.
The opportunity would not only be for the benefit of Scholars attending the Institutes, but also to the visiting Chair, in sharing their knowledge, learning from others and expanding their networks.
Fellows taking up the joint visiting Chair in Contemporary Public Policy will have a multi-faceted opportunity to contribute to the Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation’s mission, by acting as guides and mentors to the next generation of bold, innovative Scholars. This critical role means fostering the development of Scholars—all of whom are PhD students in the social sciences and humanities—so they become public educators with meaningful impact in their institutions and communities. The Fulbright Canada - Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation Fellow will receive an allowance of up to CDN $15,000 to support mentorship activities that empower Scholars to become engaged leaders of tomorrow.
