Northrop Frye Centre Undergraduate Research Award

Value: up to $2,500 maximum  

The NFC Undergrad Research Award provides Vic students with the opportunity to further their involvement with Humanities and Social Sciences research. Given that research in these fields occurs in a variety of ways, different types of proposals are encouraged and will be considered. Students should, in consultation with their faculty supervisor, propose a research project.

Please click here for a list of existing faculty-led research projects that you may wish to consider.

The funds may be taken as a form of stipend while conducting research (ie: while performing archival research and writing, or acting as a research assistant on a pre-existing project) or used to help cover a research trip. In each case, you must have a faculty supervisor who is willing to write a letter of recommendation on your behalf in which she/he comments on the project and approves the proposed budget if required. If your proposal is successful, in addition to the research funds and mentoring, you will be given the title of “Northrop Frye Centre Undergraduate Fellow” and invited to participate in NFC activities during the academic year following conferral of the award. Additionally, you will communicate the results of your project at an undergraduate research colloquium. Projects that use the resources of the Victoria University Library are encouraged.

Application deadline:  Monday, April 17th
