Fellowship in Digital Politics or Political Communication
This fellowship will support students working in the area of political communication or digital politics. Preference will be given to those studying Canadian politics. The fellowship will consist of a Research Assistantship on the SSHRC funded project Digital Political in Canada: A Comparative Study.
For more information, please contact Dr. Tamara Small firstname.lastname@example.org
Fellowship in Health Care Politics
This fellowship will examine Canadian provinces’ recent frameworks to bring naturopaths under the governance structure for self-regulated professions. The goal is to understand how naturopaths are governed, both by provincial governments and self-regulatory organizations, through a comprehensive review of legislative debates, laws, self-regulatory bylaws, and governance structures. The research will also involve the creation of a large-scale survey of Canadian naturopaths.
For more information, please contact Dr. Dave Snow email@example.com
Fellowships in Indigenous Politics/ Multiculturalism/ Race and Ethnicity/ Genocide Studies
Two categories of Fellowships arefoci. Focus one, funded by the IG, includes Indigenous self-determination (Canadian, comparative, and international dimensions), Indigenous-settler relations, reconciliation and political transition, electoral reform, and genocide studies. Focus two includes reconciliation studies, racialized peoples and identity in Canada, mixed race identities, multiculturalism, Caribbean and/or South Asian representation in Canada, and colonization in British settler states. Students may also propose other ideas related to any of the above topics.

Fellowship in LGBTQIA Activism in the Middle East
A Research Assistantship is available for a PhD student to work with Dr. Janine Clark and conduct research on LGBTQIA activism in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA). Eligible candidates must be fluent in French or Arabic; preference will be given to those who are fluent in both.

Fellowships in Wellbeing and Political Engagement of Northern and Indigenous Women and Young Women
Three fellowships will be offered in Inuit governments and organizations, and women-serving community organizations. For more information, please contact Dr. Leah Levac LLevac@uoguelph.ca
Fellowship in Law and Politics
This fellowship provides opportunities for research in the following areas: legal empowerment, administrative law as a governance technique, rights and social movement activism, and open government (particularly at the local level).
For more information, please contact Dr. Byron Sheldrick firstname.lastname@example.org
Fellowship in Law and Politics
One research project involves judicial decision-making on Canada’s provincial court of appeals. These courts are the final court for the vast majority of appeals in Canada, yet we know little about what explains the outcomes of cases at this level. Student researchers will read and code decisions, and help us to analyze the data. Does the legal model apply more at this level than the extra-legal model, which is a prevalent explanation for decisions at the Supreme Court of Canada? Another project investigates the implementation of Charter of Rights decisions by police forces. Charter decisions have fundamentally changed the rules surrounding police investigations but we do not know how police view these decisions, what training and communications processes are in place to make officers aware of the decisions, or what happens on the ground level in terms of implementation. Student researchers would help us to gather and analyze data.

Fellowship in Transnational Feminism, Global Maternal Health Initiatives, and/ or Human Rights and Justice in Guatemala
This fellowship is open to MA and PhD students interested in any of these areas. The research is funded by a SSHRC Insight Grant and seeks to understand the impact of global maternal health initiatives on aid-receiving communities, which is poorly understood yet vital for the women and communities that are the targets of intervention.
