CSRS Fellowship Program


Fellowships During COVID-19

CSRS continues to offer various fellowships during the pandemic. However, for the time being, most fellowships are restricted to virtual format only (i.e. no office space) due to the limited occupancy level at the centre and travel restrictions to BC. Please email us at csrs@uvic.ca for more details.


Each year we welcome a broad mix of scholars to be visiting members of the centre's vibrant research community. Successful applicants are provided with office space in the scenic and centrally located Sedgewick building (COVID restrictions may apply), access to library and other university services, and valuable research and networking opportunities, all within a congenial retreat-like setting. As part of their appointment, fellows are expected to provide a public lecture on their research activities.

We welcome applications from all disciplinary backgrounds. With the exception of UVic faculty and graduate student fellowships, all fellowships are non-stipendiary awards (no cash value). Applicants must be fully self-funded from external sources to qualify for these awards.

Applications are adjudicated by the centre's Program Committee based on the academic merit of the proposal, the views of the referees and the recent scholarly activity of the candidate.
