Doctoral Travel Scholarship

In 2010, the CCSR established a doctoral scholarships program to mark the 40th anniversary of its incorporation and to support the training of new generations of researchers in religious studies. The purpose of the scholarships is to enable advanced doctoral students to travel to conduct research that will contribute to their doctoral project (e.g. travel to archives, libraries, research centres and locations for field work).

The scholarships are open to Canadian citizens studying in Canada or abroad, permanent residents of Canada studying in Canada or abroad, or students on a study permit studying in Canada. To be eligible for consideration, applicants must be enrolled in a doctoral program and be studying an aspect of religious studies or theology, must have successfully completed their comprehensive or major/minor field examinations, and must have a thesis proposal that has been approved by their department or doctoral committee. Recipients of the scholarship must be or become a member of one of the constituent societies of the CCSR. The deadline for applications is November 30, 2017. The results of the competition will be announced by March 1, 2018.
