In 2018-19, Faculty of Arts and Science (FAS) introduced Pre-Doctoral Fellowships for Indigenous Students. The first of its kind in Canada, the program is designed to support the intellectual and scholarly development of senior doctoral candidates in ways that position them for success.
Building on the success of the inaugural program, in 2021-22, FAS expanded the program to include Pre-Doctoral Fellowships for Black Studies students.
The program supports the BA Honours Major and Joint Honours in Indigenous Studies offered by the Department of Languages, Literatures, and Cultures, and the BA General/Minor in Black Studies offered by the Department of Gender Studies. It is intended to reinforce the profile of the Indigenous and Black Studies programs at the graduate level and extend their interdisciplinary reach to departments, programs, and faculties across the university.
