The Good Family Visiting Faculty Fellowship

The Good Family Visiting Faculty Research Fellowship was established to encourage research in a wide variety of fields, reinforcing the traditional and anticipated research strengths of Queen’s University by inviting an outstanding scholar, who is currently on sabbatical from their home institution,  to join Queen’s University for a term of up to one year in one of the following areas: Biology, Economics, Environmental Studies, History, Physical Health Education, Political Studies, Psychology or Sociology.
