2019-20 Queen’s National Scholar program launched

The Queen’s National Scholar (QNS) program was first established in 1985, with the objective to “enrich teaching and research in newly-developing fields of knowledge as well as traditional disciplines.” Since then, over 100 QNS faculty appointments have been made in a wide variety of disciplines, and the appellation of Queen’s National Scholar has become synonymous with academic excellence.

The next round of the QNS program has now launched to attract candidates of the highest calibre to Queen’s. An annual allocation of $100,000 during the first five years of the appointment is provided. Expressions of Interest are due to faculty deans by June 14, 2019.  Full information on the QNS program
