Fellowship supports student research in the humanities

The Humanities Research Group Student Fellowship Program is growing this fall to provide funding of $1,000 for three graduate students and $500 for three undergraduates.

The student fellows will also be mentored by the 2024/25 HRG Fellow, Gregg French, meeting monthly as they develop their research plans. They will receive guidance in applying to research-based competitions, including the SSHRC Storytellers Challenge and the Three Minute Thesis Competition.

The fellowships are benefiting from a new partnership between the Humanities Research Group and the Office of the Provost. The program launched in 2022 with funding from the Feminist Research Group and continues to invite student researchers working on feminist topics related to the humanities.

“We are thrilled to support the H and R in HRG by strengthening student research through robust mentorship by top University of Windsor faculty members working in the humanities,” says HRG director Kim Nelson, an associate professor of film.

HRG invites applications by May 30 from students in any programs in the humanities, engaging in research and the study of literature, the arts, history, and philosophy.
