Given the current financial situation, and after consultation with the VP (Academic) and the Deans, they have decided to suspend the QNS competition, effective immediately. It is emphasized that the program has been suspended rather than cancelled. The suspension will be revisited in two years in light of the financial situation at that time.

The Graduate Dean's Travel Grants for Doctoral Field Research are available to contribute to the support of field research that is central to the doctoral dissertation and that must be carried out at a considerable distance from Queen's University. Applications for field research undertaken in Ontario have also been approved for locations in remote areas or when the nature of the fieldwork requires the student to be away for long periods of time. Applications to attend conferences, workshops or courses will not be supported under this program. The maximum single award is $3000 and the maximum that a student may receive during the doctoral program is $3000. Applications are assessed on the basis of academic merit, on the centrality of the fieldwork to the thesis research, the coherence of the proposal, financial need and the departmental ranking.Students must complete their Comprehensive Examination requirement before taking up the Graduate Dean's Doctoral Field Travel Award. So, any student planning to complete their comprehensive examinations between September 1, 2008 and August 31, 2009, is therefore eligible to apply to this competition (provided you plan to travel for research purposes between November 1, 2008 and October 31, 2009). Please see attached document for further eligibility. If this is applicable to you, please see complete information and application attached. Applications are due in my office (H227) by January 16, 2009.
