EMiC MA and PhD Stipends

January 22, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

The Editing Modernism in Canada project, funded by a Strategic Knowledge Cluster grant (2008-15) from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council, invites applications to its 2010 competition for master’s and doctoral stipends. Current EMiC graduate fellows are working on projects such as the print editions and digital archive in the Collected Works of P.K. Page, critical editions of works by Marius Barbeau, Martha Ostenso, F.R. Scott, Hugh MacLennan, Ernest Buckler and Miriam Waddington, and the collaboratively written play Eight Men Speak.

EMiC offers one-year stipends of $12,000 (MA) or $15,000 (PhD) to graduate students who are registered in, or entering, an MA or PhD program at one of the EMiC partner universities and who are engaged in research relevant to the project’s mandate: to produce critically edited texts by modernist Canadian authors. Successful applicants are strongly encouraged to seek matching funds from their universities and external funding from granting agencies.

In offering these stipends, EMiC interprets its mandate in the broadest possible terms: that is, the stipends are not limited to masters and doctoral students involved in work on an EMiC print or electronic edition; on the contrary, they are open to any student engaged in masters or doctoral research relevant to one or more of the three components of this project: literary modernism, scholarly editing, and the digital humanities. While EMiC interprets its mandate in the broadest possible terms, preference will be given to research projects most directly relevant to the task of producing critically edited texts by modernist Canadian authors.

Although the stipends are for a single year, doctoral students can reapply for a second award. Such re-applications by doctoral students are not automatic renewals; requests for renewals will be adjudicated in the same manner as, and in competition with, new applications. EMiC will neither entertain applications for a third doctoral stipend nor award funding to students beyond the fifth year of their program.

EMiC will provide an allocation of $12,000 (MA) or $15,000 (PhD) to the partner universities at which successful applicants are registered. EMiC co-applicants and collaborators will be responsible for ensuring that those funds are administered in keeping with the guidelines established by their respective universities.

MA and PhD students must be supervised by an EMiC co-applicant or collaborator and enrolled at or applying to an EMiC partner institution. Before submitting an application for funding, incoming students must secure commitments in principle from prospective supervisors and students already enrolled in a graduate program at an EMiC partner institution must obtain a supervisor. EMiC cannot fund students supervised by faculty members who are not themselves project participants.

Applications should be submitted via the online form available the project website: http://editingmodernism.ca/ma_phd_funding.html

Application deadline: 1 March 2010
