We offer two fellowships of up to $7,500 per year for two years to join a project on sustainability
focusing on “technologies, citizenship, and adaptation to climate change.” The project is led by
Professor Karine Gagné and supported by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council
of Canada (SSHRC). The student would pursue a MA in Public Issues Anthropology at the
University of Guelph.


Accepted students will design thesis projects in a way that aligns within the parameters of the
project mandate. The fellowship is offered in addition to stipend funds offered by the Department
of Sociology and Anthropology. It will consist partly in funds for fieldwork and partly in Research
Assistantship. Additional funds may be available for relevant conference travel.


Expected start date is fall 2019. Interested students should review admission guidelines for the
Master’s program in Public Issues Anthropology (
