Media@McGill Graduate Research Fellowships for Continuing Doctoral Students

Media@McGill offers a number of research fellowships, on a competitive basis, to continuing doctoral students, in Art History or in Communication Studies, conducting media-related research. Details for the competition are presented below. For a list of students awarded fellowships in previous competitions, click here.

Goal: To support graduate-student research related to media, as defined in Media@McGill’s mission statement.

Eligibility: PhD 3, 4, and 5 students are eligible (normally, students who are in their 2nd-4th years in the program when applying). Students must have passed their comprehensive examinations at the time of application. Preference may be given to students who do not hold major fellowships from other sources.

Award: maximum of $5,000

Application materials: 1. A 500-word proposal outlining the research work to be undertaken during the period of the award. Research projects usually consist in the preparation of a scholarly article or a dissertation chapter (or both). The proposal should state the research problem, discuss how the problem will be investigated, and show how it fits into the applicant’s overall plan of study. 2. A summary of how the project fits with Media@McGill’s mission statement. 3. An up-to-date curriculum vitae (the CV must include all past, ongoing and upcoming grants and fellowships, amounts and year(s) of final payment). 4. The name of your PhD supervisor.

Condition of Award: Successful applicants must agree to have their research proposal posted on the Media@McGill website and acknowledge the support of Media@McGill in material produced with the aid of the fellowship. Within a year of the award date, the student must submit a 500-word (or longer) report on the project—a report that will replace the research proposal posted on the website.
