Canadian Studies – Eakin Visiting Fellowship
(2021-2022 academic year)
Location: Montreal, Quebec (Canada)
The McGill Institute for the Study of Canada (MISC) is pleased to announce that it is now
accepting applications for the Eakin Visiting Fellowship in Canadian Studies for the
2021/2022 academic year.
The Eakin Visiting Fellowship in Canadian Studies was created with the generous support of the
Eakin Family in memory of William R. Eakin. It is awarded for periods of one or two academic
semesters to an active scholar focusing on studies related to Canada. Typically, the award is
granted to a scholar on sabbatical from an academic institution but practitioners active in the
field of public affairs are also encouraged to apply. The position is open, in terms of rank and
discipline, to dynamic scholars who can enrich the study of Canada with fresh perspectives. The
Fellowship may also be awarded to an individual outside of the academic community, whose
writing, research or public career are making a significant contribution to intellectual life in
The incumbent is expected to teach one undergraduate course in Canadian Studies at McGill
University, deliver the Eakin Lecture, participate in the activities of the Institute, and pursue
exchanges with colleagues at McGill and other institutions.
The Fellowship will offer a stipend of $15,000 per semester.
